Gallbladder removal surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures nowadays. This procedure is usually performed with minimally invasive techniques.
During the surgery, a laparoscope (an instrument used to see the inside of your body) will be used to remove the gallbladder. It is performed through several small incisions (usually 4 incisions) each one inch or less in length.
People who have gone through laparoscopic gallbladder surgery are sore for the first week after surgery, and the discomfort is minimal in comparison to patients who’ve had open surgery.
Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is safe and effective. Surgery gets rid of gallstones located in the gallbladder.
