DEPARTMENT OF GALL BLADDER LAPAROSCOPY SURGERY
What is Gall bladder laparoscopy surgery?
The gall bladder is a small organ located below your liver, in your right side of the upper abdomen. The gall bladder stores bile, which is a liquid produced in the liver. The gall bladder releases bile into the small bowel to help break down and absorb dietary fats. The gall bladder laparoscopy surgery is the best method of treating gallstones that affects the gall bladder. This surgery is used most commonly when no factors are present that may complicate the surgery.
Gall bladder removal through laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery in which small incisions and specialized tools are used to remove a diseased or inflamed gallbladder. Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is safe and effective.
Why is a laparoscopic gallbladder removal performed?
The main reason for having a gallbladder removed is the presence of gallstones and the complications they cause. Gallstones form inside the gallbladder from substances in the bile that become solid. They can be as small as a grain of sand and as large as a golf ball.
You might also need this surgery if you have the following:
- Biliary dyskinesia, which occurs when the gallbladder doesn’t empty bile correctly due to a defect
- Choledocholithiasis, which occurs when gallstones move to the common bile duct and potentially cause a blockage that prevents the gallbladder and rest of the biliary tree from draining
- Cholecystitis, which is an inflammation of the gallbladder
- Pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas that is related to gallstones
Gall bladder laparoscopy surgery is preferred to open surgery because our experienced surgeons make smaller incisions and remove the gallstones. Smaller incisions reduce your risk of infection, bleeding, and recovery time.
