The gallbladder is the part that is responsible for the condation and storage of bile (secreted by the liver). When we eat, especially those foods that contain oil, fat; the gallbladder will contract to push the bile fluid contained in it into the bile tract and then down to the duodenum to mix with food that helps digest fat.
1. Are gallstones really dangerous?
The gallbladder is a small, blue bag, with a capacity of 30-60 ml, located at the position below the right hepatic lobe, connected to the gallbladder through the gallbladder. The gallbladder is responsible for the condation and storage of bile secreted by the liver.
Gallstones are a very common disease, the proportion of the population with gallbladder stones increases with age. In the US, in their 60s, about 25% of women and 12% of men have gallstones. Currently, in Vietnam, the proportion of gallstones detected accounts for 58-71% of biliary stones in general.
Gallstones cause complications such as vomiting, severe pain in the upper or middle abdomen of the back, inflammation of the biliary line, pancreatitis,… In particular, if not treated in time, gallstones are at risk of developing acute gallbladder inflammation. When gallstones block the gallbladder from the gallbladder, it can cause inflammation and infection in the gallbladder that leads to acute gallbladder inflammation. This is a medical emergency, which can be life-threatening.
2. Treatment of gallstones
All cases of symptomatic gallstones have therapeutic in ho chi minh city, regardless of the size and number of stones. From studies that monitor the natural course of gallstones, the smaller the gallstones, the earlier surgery should be carried out to avoid the case of gallbladder inflammation and the risk of gallbladder cancer.
Currently, there are 2 treatments for gallstones that are non-surgical and surgical.
- Non-surgical treatment of stones dissolving pills, scattering stones outside the body with shock waves, dissolving stones and taking stones through the skin. The result of treatment of this method depends on the type of stones, the size of the stones and the anatomy of the bile duct.
- Surgical treatment of the gallbladder by open abdominal surgery or choreecting through laparoscopy. Today, there are many hospitals that have applied laparoscopic surgery to remove the gallbladder with many advantages: Small incisions, less pain after surgery, quick recovery and aesthetics. At Share99 International Health Hub, we are applying robotic laparoscopic surgery to treat gallstones. This is the most advanced and modern method today with a success rate of up to 95%.
3. What's so special about robotic laparoscopic surgery at Share99?
Besides a team of experienced doctors, Share99 International Health Hub is proud to be the first robotic surgical technology unit in Vietnam. Cutting gallstone chochitis with robotic laparoscopic surgery at Share99 has the following advantages:
- Da Vinci robot is equipped with 4 flexible arms that allow to perform many operations in surgery such as cutting, wound stitching, clamping, welding, CO2 suction pump,… can perform complex surgical techniques that other laparoscopic surgery methods are difficult or impossible to perform.
- Da Vinci Robot Surgery gives optimal quality images with greater precision. In particular, the advanced 3D display system allows to observe the entire area of the anatomy inside the body in high resolution, magnification 10 times more than usual.
- Safe, minimize the risk of complications, surgical infections.
- Using Intuitive Masters remote control technology allows the clamping of surgical instruments and body parts to be firm, overcome shaking or frequent vibrations during hand surgery, helping surgeons perform the operation with high precision , help the incision holes ensure a diameter of 1 cm.
In addition, robotic surgery techniques are also combined with a program to enhance recovery after surgery. With the best pain relief method, patients can quickly recover and live normally twice as quickly as other laparoscopic surgery methods.
