What are Gallstones?


Many people can develop gallstones and never know it. Gallstones are hard deposits in your gallbladder.

The gall bladder is a pear shaped organ beneath the liver and stores bile, which is a greenish-yellow digestive fluid produced by the liver. When we eat, the gall bladder releases bile into the small intestine where it helps to digest fats.

Certain fats (such as cholesterol) are not easily dissolved in bile. When there is too much of these components in bile, they precipitate and form solid crystals. These clump together forming gallstones – also known as cholelithiasis.

Symptoms & diagnosis of gall stones.


Patients with gallstones may feel severe abdominal pain in the right upper side, particularly after eating a fatty mail, called acute cholecystitis. There could be nausea, vomiting, fever and jaundice and patient should be visiting a surgical gastroenterologist immediately.

Patients with low grade inflammation of gall bladder may have abdominal bloating, intolerance of fatty food, indigestion and belching.


Ultrasonography of abdomen is most sensitive and specific test to diagnose gallstones. Other procedures, such as CT scan HIDA scan or ERCP (endoscopic retro cholangiopancreatography) may also be used. Certain blood tests are advised for signs of infection, jaundice, or pancreatitis.

How can Gallstones be prevented?

You can’t prevent gallstones, but you can reduce your risk with lifestyle strategies. Eat a balanced diet. Do not skip meals. Drink sufficient amounts of water each day to keep your body hydrated.

If you plan to lose weight do it slowly. Quick weight loss may increase your risk for gallstones and other health problems.

What patient says about Dr. Nitish Jhawar

  • Person Image

    I was diagnosed with gall stones a year ago in Delhi, I showed it to a doctor at M.... hospital, he .... asked me to get a surgery done and get my gall removed on any date of my choice, I was sacred and too young to get it done I got a vibe from doctor that for him it’s just a small things, however according to for a patient it’s important first be convinced on the urgency to get it done and feel safe . A year later I shifted to Mumbai and started having a frequent pain in shoulder blades and gall area. It went sharp this time. We went to Dr Nitish , as oppose to Delhi doc, Dr Nitish was very polite, first asked us to get the scan done and understand the current scenario, the scan showed one big 17 mm stone which was earlier also there but this time also there were multiple various sized stones as well along with the big one. Dr Nitish examined the scan, explained me and my husband about the condition and need of surgery or else the stone Would have slipped in the panacea or bile calling for a bigger operation. He explained diagramatically . He was patient in explaining, gave us time to think and be convinced. We were ready and then he performed it . It was flawless, quick and went well. He is a very experienced and fine surgeon , he is caring and doesn’t create panic at all rather he takes it slowly and makes patient comfortable. It was lapro, it’s been 2 months I m writing this . I faced no issues till now. Fortis staff was also very caring and good. I would mention fortis Vashi in specific. Good follow up diet makes it normal. I would strongly recommend Dr Nitish. He knows his job perfectly. He is not money minded at all. He would recommend surgery only if it’s required.
