Gallbladder removal or cholecystectomy is a surgical process to remove the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ that is used to collect and store bile which is a digestive fluid produced by the liver. Once stones are formed in gallbladder, its digestive function is lost and removal warranted. Gallbladder removal is a common surgery and a daycare procedure.

Several tiny incisions are made to remove the gallbladder in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A tiny camera and special surgical tools are used to safely perform surgery. Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) utilizes single small incision for even better cosmesis.

Choledocholithiasis or Gallstones in the bile duct when it may be combined with Laparoscopic CBD Exploration or ERCP(Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography)
Recovery After Gallbladder Removal
After laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the patient can go home the same day. The patient is able to eat and drink without pain and can even start walking, a few hours after the surgery. It provides for a much faster recovery and superior cosmesis when compared to open cholecystectomy era when a large incision used to be made.
