I am 54 years old and I have a problem with my gallbladder. It is infected and besides that there is a great number of little stones in it, which was confirmed with ultra sound diagnostic method. I have sharp pain beneath the right ribs. I feel nausea, I vomit sometimes. I take antibiotics now and doctor recommended Lithotripsy. What is this procedure?

Lithotripsy is a non operative method which is used to destroy the stones in the gallbladder system. This procedure can be used in breaking the stones in other systems (kidney and urinary tract). This technique is done by applying the ultra sound pressure from outside on the stones. This method has a lot of effect and success.
