Bladder stones (bladder calculi) are mineral clusters that develop in the bladder, where urine is stored until excreted. The minerals from these stones are from the urine. They do not cause trouble when they are small in size because they pass out easily. When they develop into hard masses, you may need therapy or surgery, as advised by your doctor.

How are bladder stones diagnosed?
Urine test: Your urine sample will be tested to see whether you have a urinary tract infection and to assess the levels of blood, salt, and other minerals.
CT scan, X-ray, and ultrasound examinations will all help you view a clear image of the bladder. The ultrasonography may identify stones of any form or size.
Cystoscopy: Your doctor will inspect your bladder using a cystoscope during this procedure. A small camera-equipped tube is passed into the urethra and into the bladder. Cystoscopy provides a clear image of your bladder, allowing you to inspect it and check for stones.
What are the treatment options for curing bladder stones?
Cystolitholapaxy: A surgical technique for the treatment of bladder stones. To begin, the cystoscopy procedure will be used to find the bladder stone. If the size of your stone is small enough, the doctor will use a laser or ultrasound to break it down into small pieces. Then, the broken stones are washed away with the fluid.
Shock Waves: Shock waves may be used to break down small gallbladder stones, which is also known as Extracorporeal Shock-wave Lithotripsy (ESWL). When the stones are smaller than 2cm in size, this procedure is the most successful.
Laparoscopic (keyhole) cholecystectomy – several small incisions are made in the abdomen and fine surgical instruments are used to access and remove your gallbladder.
Open cholecystectomy – a single larger incision is made in the abdomen to access and remove your gallbladder.
Laparoscopic Technique: Because of its effectiveness, the Laparoscopic Technique is the treatment of choice. Short-operating time, Fewer complications, Post-operative discomfort is reduced, and medicine is used less often. Excellent aesthetic outcomes, a shorter hospital stay, a reduced risk of wound infection, an earlier return to work, and a comparable lower incidence of common bile duct (CBD) damage.
