Thanks for writing to us.
Surgery is the only treatment to remove a bile duct calculus.
It can be done by laser also. The duration of admission and expenses depends on the procedure chosen for you, any associated diseases and complications, etc. Only the operating surgeon can tell you this after complete evaluation.
You can see our patient written reviews to select the best surgeon.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
