Gallstones Removal Surgery

Removing Gallstones Safely

The gallbladder is a small organ that stores bile and then transfers it to the intestines as needed. The bile assists digestive processes. A person can live normally without a gallbladder, which is why it is common to have it completely removed it in the event of infection or blockage. The miVIP Surgical Centers use minimally invasive gallstone removal surgery to provide relief to people who are suffering from gallstones.

Gallstones are small bits of matter that can collect and create clogs in the bile duct and gallbladder. Often made from cholesterol, gallstones can be uncomfortable and inhibit the healthy workings of the liver and intestines. If a person experiences gallstone symptoms, it may be time to have the gallbladder diagnosed and surgically removed.

Likelihood of Developing Gallstones

Fortunately for patients, gallstone removal sugary has advanced in recent years. This is ideal for the many people who are diagnosed with the condition every year:

  • Men are more likely to experience gallstones during their lifetimes.
  • 25 percent of men have had gallstones by the age of 75.
  • 10 to 25 percent of residents of the United States are currently affected by gallstone symptoms.
  • Nearly one million people are diagnosed with gallstones annually.

Common Causes of Gallstones

The main cause of gallstone development is hypothesized to be too much cholesterol in the bile. Organs have a difficult time disposing of cholesterol, and if it is too prevalent in the body, it can form gallstones. Also, gallstones can develop if the gallbladder fails to discharge itself completely. Backed-up bile can form crystallized fragments.

Recognizing the Symptoms

It is typical for patients to have had gallstones for many years without experiencing noticeable symptoms. Some of the most common signs of advanced stone development include:

  • Acute and sharp pain in the central abdominal area, typically around the right shoulder.
  • Gallbladder pain directly after eating
  • Jaundice, or yellowing of the skins and eyes
  • Fever
  • Dark urine
  • Light colored bowel movements
