Gall Bladder Surgery
The Gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ situated underneath the liver on the right side of abdomen. The main purpose of the gallbladder is to store and concentrate bile. Bile is a liquid that is produced by the liver, which helps digest fat in our diet. Bile juice passes through the liver through a series of channels, known as bile ducts, into the gallbladder. The bile is stored in the gallbladder and released into the digestive system when it is required.

“I was suffering from last 10 years, I had a rectovaginal fistula; I was scared and embarrassed; I had 2 repairs done earlier; It took me a long time to be convinced that it can be finally treated surgically. Thanks a lot to Dr Ritu. She did the surgery with a plastic surgeon. I am so clean now. God Bless them!”
“I approached her through the website, I had 2 aneurysms operated with large incisions. I had Marfan’s syndrome. I had an incisional hernia. One attempt of surgery was done before. I was looking for an expert who does the abdominal wall reconstruction. I had the surgery at Medeor Hospital with Dr Khare. I was glad to know she had the concepts well in place. It was a difficult surgery, she needed to remove the old mesh and get a large new one in position. The surgery was fine. I am doing so much better now. I had to move back to UK, I still remain in touch through whatsapp.”
Mr David, UK
The Crohn’s disease was there since a long time. I had taken all kinds of medications and injections. The previous surgery had resulted in formation of a colocutaneous fistula. It was a complicated mass lesion. My gastroenterologist referred me to Dr. Khare. She studied the case well, and after extensive counseling; I had a surgery for removal of fistula, and resection of the part of the affected bowel. It took 7 days in hospital and around 2 weeks of postoperative care. I am good now. Crohn’s disease needs special care. Not all surgeons know much about it. Strongly recommend her as a Gastrosurgeon for Crohn’s.

Ms. Maria, Philippines
I had a small breast lump. It was not troubling me at all. Three doctors earlier said, to leave it and continue doing US and mammogram. Dr. Khare said, “I do not advise to keep a lump which is bigger than 2 cms, for life, remove it”. It was such a blessing. It was a cancer but had not spread at all. I did not need any chemotherapy. My nodes in axilla were negative. Thankfully I followed her advice.
My prolapse was becoming a nightmare. I needed someone to repair it without causing pain. I had a procedure called STARR. Oh My God, It was so good. I can’t feel any symptoms now.
