How laparoscopy can help in treating gallbladder stone and prevent you from severe medical conditions, which can happen because of it.
Hello I am Dr Sudhir Kalhan. I am senior consultant and the CO chairman of the department of minimal access metabolic and bariatric surgery at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. Sir Ganga Ram Hospital is a multispeciality tertiary care centre having reference from all over India. Power department specialising in treating diseases of the gallbladder appendix and hernia and diseases related to obesity. Today I am going to discuss common diseases like gallbladder stone disease. Gallbladder as we all know is a small organ in the liver bed. It stores about 30 ml of bile and whenever we have a heavy fatty meal, this extra bile is secreted into the stomach.
Very commonly especially in North India where we take a fat rich diet which is high on lipids and cholesterol we have what is known as gallbladder stone disease. So what happens is that whenever we take a fat heavy meal this gallbladder contracts and produces pain the upper abdomen which radiates it to the back. Gallstone disease can be very very dreadful if these those fall into the common bile duct it can produce jaundice. If did stones pass into the pancreas they can produce inflammation of the pancreas and dreadful disease of pancreas which can later cause diabetes mellitus. Also one of the most dreaded complications of gallbladder stone disease is that 10% of longstanding gallbladder stone disease can go into cancer of the gallbladder which is a near fatal disease.
On the other hand gallbladder disease can very easily be tackle now using a technique known as laparoscopic surgery. Yes Kotak surgery commonly known as keyhole surgery or Telescopic surgery or loosely also as laser surgery requires making small tiny holes into the abdomen 5 millimetres of size which insert a telescope which is connected to a camera. Using this telescope and camera we put and ancillary instruments and bisect the gallbladder of the liver bed and using metallic clips this is then dissected of and removed from the gallbladder. The disease gallbladder is then sent for biopsy.
This whole surgery normally takes about 20 to 30 minutes and most of the patients can start moving around 1 to 2 hours after surgery and typically with 24 hours the patients are back to the normal routines. That means they can move around the can climb stairs they can eat there normal diet and they can go back to the normal works within 3-4 days. So my suggestion to all of you is that gallbladder disease is a very dreadful disease. We should not wait for the disease to advanced.
An early treatment leads to early recovery. Thank you.

Dear Sir refer my question last I donot have DM till. If I get pancreatitis I am getting DM due to not entering the insulin in to the stream due to blockage of duct while in pancreatitis attacks. Unless and otherwise my FBS will be 95 to 110 for a long time. What ever may be for the ILD as per the instruction of my pulmonologist I started pilfenex and omnacortil treatment from last week. My question is this sir is there any proven treatment in allopathy for this chronic calcific pancreatitis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis except the symptomatic treatment on its attack the medical world wants to take the problem as very serious and money making should not be the primary aim of doctors and hospitals like our ancestors charaka and sustrutha chakrapani agasthya chyavana has done life for the human and life for the society we expect at least 50% of that from the modern medicine. What is your views and opinion I dont know. Then also it should be like that.
I have severe gastric problem tried a lot of homeo medicines including carbo veg 6, lycopodium 6 etc but not getting any relief. Please suggest.
Homeopathy can very well dissolve gall stones of small and medium sizes, and relieve the gall bladder and body permanently from the pain, suffering and complications coming from gall stones. One of the benefits of homeopathic treatment for gall stones is that your gall bladder does not need removal, and being an important organ for producing digestive enzymes, it is better to keep it in your body. The other benefit is that you get a side effect-free treatment, which is completely efficient and practical, and costs really low compared to other modes of treatments and surgeries.
But before one goes for a homeopathic treatment, a complete evaluation of the patient’s case history must be done so that the right medicine can be given as per the case, history, severity etc. Here is a quick look at the commonly used homeopathic medicines, which doctors, depending on your case history, may prescribe for your gall stone.
Homeopathic medicines used for treating gall stones
- Calcarea carbonica: If you have a family history of kidney and gall stones, are anxious and slow, overweight with high deposits of triglycerides and cholesterol, then you would be given this medicine.
- Chelidonium: If you get pain in any or both of the two patterns pain originating under your right shoulder blade and pain in the upper right abdomen, which spreads to the back, you will be prescribed this one.
- Lycopodium: This medicine is usually recommended in case you have a family history of stones in kidney and gall bladder, along with other complications like, chronic digestive disorders, high cholesterol, gastric problems, constipation, peptic ulcers, gas and bloating. The patient may usually get biliary colic pains late in the afternoon. He or she may also get irritated easily, and hate contradicting opinions.
- Natrum sulphuricum: The patient may have any or some of the problems like chronic diarrhea, gall stone pain, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression, obesity and problem in joints. On top of that the patient may be too sensitive to changes in humidity and weather. In such a case, Natrum sulphuricum is given.
- Nux vomica: If a patient suffers from nausea, colic pains, spasmodic pains, heartburn and acidity, gas and bloating, and takes too much of rich and oily food and drinks, then this medicine is used to treat gall stones for him or her.
As you can see, there is a remedy for all types of patients. Hence in case of small to medium sized gall stones, you can always retain the gall bladder, avoid surgeries, and keep patience with systematic homeopathic treatment from an expert doctor. You will get positive results soon.
