    What is Gallbladder?

    It is a small, pear-shaped organ situated on the upper right abdomen that stores bile made by the liver. The gallbladder releases this bile to help break down and digest fatty foods. Gallbladder surgery, or cholecystectomy, is performed when gallstones get deposited, causing severe pain in your abdomen.

    Gallstone Removal Surgery

    Surgery is typically not necessary if you are experiencing no symptoms from your gallstones. If you have gallstones, your stomach will experience a severe, knife-like agony that can continue for several hours. When a gallstone enters or obstructs a bile duct, you may require gallbladder or gallstone removal surgery.

    Causes & Symptoms of Gallstones

    As compared to men, women are more likely to get gallstones. Additionally, those who are overweight and have a family history of gallstones are more likely to develop them. Excess cholesterol in the bile juice is the leading cause of gallstones, which may occur due to obesity or diabetes.

    Normally, the bile released by the gallbladder is sufficient to break down the cholesterol your liver excretes. However, if your liver excretes more cholesterol than your bile can break down, it may crystallise and eventually turn into gallstones. Gallstones can also be formed if the bile contains too much bilirubin. The bilirubin chemical is produced by the liver due to red blood cell breakdown, liver cirrhosis, and certain blood disorders.

    Treatment for Gallstone Diseases



    The gallbladder cannot be cured using medicines. Doctors usually provide some medicines that may slow the growth of the stones but cannot dissolve them. A doctor uses this treatment only in special conditions, like if you have a serious medical condition and surgery can be critical for you or you are waiting, say, a month before surgery.

    ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography)


    ERCP treatment does not remove the gallbladder; it only removes gallstones from the bile duct. This procedure uses a long, thin, flexible tube called an endoscope, which is passed through the mouth and goes down where the bile duct opens in the small intestine.

    Open Surgery

    Open Surgery

    Open surgery is rarely performed, only if the gallbladder is cancerous or laparoscopic surgery fails. In this treatment, a 10 cm cut is made underneath the ribs, and the surgeon performs the surgery in traditional procedure with their surgical tools. Removal of the gallbladder through surgery is highly suggested by doctors as it provides a permanent solution to the infection.

    Laparoscopic Surgery (Cholecystectomy)

    Laparoscopic Surgery

    Laparoscopic surgery is the most recommended treatment for gallbladder surgery. It is usually performed under general anaesthesia to avoid pain during surgery. Two small (5 mm) and one large (10 mm) insertions are made in your abdomen, and then the abdomen is inflated using carbon dioxide to make the procedure easier. In one cut, a laparoscope is inserted, which has a tiny light and video camera at the end. Your surgeon performs the procedure while watching a video screen. The gallbladder will subsequently be removed by your surgeon using specialised surgical tools.



    Cost of Gallbladder Surgery

    Generally, the cost of gallbladder surgery in India ranges from Rs. 60,000 to Rs. 1,50,000. However, the cost may vary according to the gallstone and the treatment required.
