Also known as Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is amongst the most common surgery procedures performed in the United States. The reason is that millions of people develop stones in their gallbladder. These gallstones can become symptomatic causing severe abdominal pain below your rib cage or behind your breastbone, especially after eating fatty foods. The condition can be diagnosed with the help of an ultrasound, which shows stones in the gallbladder.

If someone is having pain caused by gallstones, then the recommended treatment is removal of the gallbladder, along with the stones it carries. Medicines do not seem to work effectively to cure this problem. This procedure can be performed laparoscopically in 30 minutes using a few tiny skin incisions, and people go home the same day with minimal discomfort. They usually return to work in a few days.

If you have abdominal pain described above, you may have stones in your gallbladder and may require surgery. Feel free to ask Dr. Mehta about your options.
