Cholecystectomy

Cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of gallbladder. Gall bladder is a pear shaped organ located under your liver. It stores digestive juice called bile, which is produced in the liver. Cholecystectomy is the common treatment option for gallstones, cholecystitis and other gall bladder conditions.

Procedure

Cholecystectomy is usually performed under general anaesthesia. There are two types of cholecystectomy: open and laparoscopic. Either one of them can be opted depending on several factors including overall health condition of the patient, associated medical conditions and medical history.

Open Cholecystectomy:

  • An incision of about 4 to 6 inches is made in the upper right side of your abdomen.
  • Your surgeon then finds your gallbladder and takes it out through the incision.
  • Your incision is then cleaned, sutured and suitable dressing is then applied.

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy:

  • A few, small incisions will be made in your abdomen.
  • A long thin tube with a high-resolution camera at the front is then inserted through the incision.
  • The camera displays images which can be seen on a monitor and this helps the surgeon to see the inside of the abdomen clearly and locate the gallbladder.
  • The gallbladder is then removed through any one of the incisions using surgical tools already inserted along with the laparoscope into the abdomen.
  • The incisions are then cleaned, sutures and suitable dressing is applied.
