What Are Gallstones?
Gallstones are stone formations in your gallbladder, a small organ under your liver.
Your gallbladder stores and releases bile, a fluid made in your liver, to help in digestion.
Gallstones can range from the size of a grain of sand to that of a golf ball.
You might not know that you have them until they block the gallbladder or a bile duct, causing Cholecystitis pain that needs treatment right away.
What are the types of Gallstone?
The two main kinds are:
Cholesterol stones: Most common, up to 80% of gallstones.
Pigment stones: smaller and darker. They’re made of bilirubin.
Why do Gallstones develop?
Gallstones may form when the chemicals in the gallbladder are out of balance, such as cholesterol, calcium bilirubin, and calcium carbonate.

Medicines: There are no effective medications.
In laparoscopic Gallstone Surgery, the doctor makes a small incision and inserts a laparoscope that has a tiny video camera mounted on top and surgical tools and the surgeon performs the surgery while looking at a TV monitor to remove the gallstones, Called Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy.
Open Gallstone Surgery: Instead of a tiny laparoscope, the doctor makes a big cut in the skin, wide open the area, and removes the gallstone called Open Cholecystectomy
Cholecystostomy: If you’re at high risk for surgery complications, a pigtail drainage tube may be placed into the gallbladder through the skin. Your surgery may be postponed until your risk is lowered by treating your other medical conditions, Called Interval Cholecystectomy.
Each type of surgery has its advantages and disadvantages. The best approach will be decided by the patient’s surgeon.
