Gallbladder or bile duct stones

Specialty of Surgery

Gallstones or vesicular, also called stones are solid deposits of salts of variable size (from a bit to a nut) calcium compounds and bilirubin, cholesterol or a combination of the three, that form in the gallbladder gall. The gallstones cause no symptoms in many cases, although the patient may have a yellowish skin color (jaundice), fever or abdominal pain and even make stools whitish or have dizziness and vomiting. If the stones in the gallbladder symptoms occur, the patient usually requires surgery, which can be minimally invasively through small incisions in the abdomen through which a laparoscope and other tools (laparoscopic cholecystectomy) or open (open cholecystectomy) are introduced. You can also administer medications, although the disappearance of the stones in the gallbladder is slow and may recur after treatment.
