Gall stones are common biliary pathology. Its treatment is chiefly surgical removal of gall bladder and is one of the most common operations performed by surgeons. Although lot of cases have been treated by homoeopathy, the outcome is not very encouraging (as is evident from our research data given below).
However, the results of study conducted at GCCHR remove the prevalent myths from the mind of physicians, surgeons and even public that gall stones can’t be treated by medicines. It is also evident that unlike kidney stones, dissolution of gallbladder stones is very rare event, although not impossible. Nevertheless, it gives a ray of hope to pediatric, geriatric and patients suffering from diabetes, hypertension and other systemic diseases in whom surgery is contraindicated.
