I am Dr Ashok Gupta, practising since last 37 years as a general surgeon, laparoscopic surgeon and Gastroenderoscopist. Today, we are going to discuss about Gall Bladder Stone disease.

In my carrier of 37 years, I have operated the maximum number of cases of Galstone diseases. Gallstone disease is a very much prevalant in this part of the country. The reason of the Gallstones are many but the diet factor, the inactivity, obesity, diabetes or metabolic disease difference are there. The clinical features of this disease are;

  • Patient complaint for pain in the upper abdomen
  • Extention of the abdomen
  • Vomiting

And this leads to many complications with times.

The diagnosis of this disease is very siple which is the ultrasound. ULtrasound is the main stage in the treatment which helps in diagnosing this disease. If the gall bladder disease is complicated further, then few more investigations like CT Scan, MRI Scan are neded.

The treatment of this disease is very simple these days by the way of Minimal Access Surgery. Initially we used to give 5-7 inches horizontal incision in the adbomen which gives the very ugly scar later. Now there is a Minimal Access Surgery which is called Laparoscopy Cholecystectomy in which the small hole is made and the chip camera is intrioduced and the gall bladder is disacted very easily. 

The post surgery period is uneventful in most of the cases and the person can go home on the same day or on the next day. The complications are very few of this procedure.

If you want to contact me, I am Ashok Gupta at Tirupati Medical Centre in Malviya Nagar. You can also contact me through Lybrate.
