Gallstones – our treatment

Gallstones are not bad per se, but they can cause severe colic and related pain. Depending on the size and position of your gallstones, conservative measures such as mediation or a change in diet can help to relieve the symptoms. In any case, you should refrain from using “home remedies” within your own therapy. Sometimes gallstones or the gallbladder must be removed by means of surgery or endoscopy after appropriate diagnostics, which can be carried out in our hospital, in order to permanently relieve you of your pain. Our specialists treat you individually and expertly in our interdisciplinary abdominal centre at Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek. If surgery is necessary to remove your gallstones, our experts use gentle, minimally invasive surgical techniques wherever possible. So you can recover quicker after your surgery.
