Cholecystectomy

What is a cholecystectomy?

Overview: A cholecystectomy is a surgical treatment that removes your gallbladder. Cholecystectomy is recommended if you have:

  • Gallstones in the gallbladder (cholelithiasis)
  • Gallstones in the bile duct (choledocholithiasis)
  • Gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis)
  • Pancreas inflammation (pancreatitis) due to gallstones

Gallbladder removal is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder – this is called laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In some cases, a big incision may be used to remove the gallbladder – this is called an open cholecystectomy.

Cholecystectomy is a pretty common surgery that only carries minor complications. You can ideally go home the same day of your cholecystectomy.
