Laparoscopic Surgeon In Bangalore
It is the gold standard procedure for patient with symptomatic gallstones. The symptoms may range from mild upper abdominal pain to a sick patient with gangrene/ perforation of gallbladder. Asymptomatic people with gallstones are usually kept on follow up except in certain circumstances- Diabetics/ frequent foreign travellers/ navy personnel/ people from north east India/ stone size >20mm/ patient of hemolytic diseases/ patient undergoing major abdominal surgery for other reasons. The reason/ logic for offering them surgery upfront varies from risk of cancer to risk of complicated disease in first presentation to risk of not getting treatment when they become symptomatic.
