Stones in gall bladder, hernia. No pain. Need to find good surgeons in Chennai

HI, My mom is 53 and has been detected with both stones in the gall bladder and a hernia , The hernia she ha sbeen carrying for 2 years and there is no pain. However, my dad is paralytic and completely dependent on her for his basic amenitites. Is it a good option to get both operated at the same time. Also, please suggest 2-3 good surgeons in Chennai and where I can find rough cost estimates. -Suman Poddar (0000, YYYY@YYYY )

Thanks for writing in.
The two surgeries should never be done together.
If the hernia is symptomatic then get that operated first and then the gall bladder surgery.
A clean hernia repair should never be coupled with a gall baldder surgery which is clean contaminated in nature.
