Gallstones are hard, pebble-like deposits that form inside the gallbladder. Gallstones may be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a golf ball and often the patient will not have any symptoms. Laparoscopy, also known as keyhole surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure used in gallbladder treatment. Faster recovery time, less pain after an operation and minimal scarring are just some of the benefits of laparoscopic procedures compared to more invasive techniques. A laparoscopy can be used to help diagnose and treat a wide range of other conditions including hernias and obesity.
