One Stop Gallstone Clinic

SurgeonsGallstone disease is common, but does not cause symptoms in all patients1.Symptomatic patients  can benefit from surgery after a careful asessment. This implies taking a detailed history and appropriate investigations before making a decision about further treatment. Diagnostic pathways can be long, requiring many visits to the hospital for investigations before a final decision can be made.

Albyn hospital offers a One Stop Gallstone clinic, providing rapid diagnostic treatment and clear management plans. The clinic will provide a detailed clinical assessment; diagnosis and a treatment plan all in one visit, and is run by Prof I Ahmed and Mr B Alkari. These surgeons specialise in advanced keyhole techniques for managing gallstones.

All patients will have a detailed clinical initial assessment by the responsible consultant. If necessary, they will receive the relevant investigations including ultrasound, MRI and pre-assessment services in the same visit and will be booked for an operation on the next available operation date. 

At BMI you will receive first class treatment at an affordable price.
