Cholecystectomy

What is a cholecystectomy?

 

A cholecystectomy is a surgical treatment that removes your gallbladder. A cholecystectomy/gallbladder removal should be considered if you experience pain from gallstones that block the flow of bile.

 

Gallbladder removal is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see the inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder – this is called a 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.
