Today our Institute is the world's only developer of equipment for minimally invasive operations of a new type to remove stones and polyps from the gallbladder and its ducts with organ preservation.
For more than 18 years of clinical studies have shown that only 5-8% of the stones are formed again. In order to avoid recurrence, our doctors give recommendations and regularly check ultrasound during the first 3-5 years after surgery. But, even if you forget to do comparison ultrasound after surgery and the stones are finally formed, in this case, the operation can be repeated the required number of times.
Unique equipment for minimally invasive operations on the gallbladder was developed and patented in China, produced in Germany. More than 1000 patents are received for the equipment and technologies for carrying out operation with gallbladder preservation at the moment. More than 6,000 operations were successfully carried out for Chinese citizens and foreigners from 23 countries during 10 years.
