Best Endoscopy Center in Vandalur, Tambaram , Chengalpattu

Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure of removing your gallbladder. The gallbladder is an exocrine organ that secretes digestive juices and is located in close proximity to the liver.

One of the commonest reasons for cholecystectomy is gallstones. The surgical correction can relieve the pain and discomfort and prevent a lot of the complications associated with untreated gallstones. Calculus cholecystitis is an emergency wherein the calculus in the gallbladder ends up at the neck obstructing gallbladder.

Cholecystectomy can be done as an open as well as laparoscopic procedure. It is a very common surgical procedure. Laparoscopic removal has faster recovery and carries minimal chance of post– operative infection.

PROCEDURE NAME Laparoscopic Gallbladder Cholecystectomy
SURGERY TYPE Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic
ANAESTHESIA General Anaesthesia

In a Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the surgeon makes four small incisions in your abdomen. A tiny video camera is inserted through a tube into your abdomen through one of the incisions which is then connected to a video monitor. The surgeon performs the entire surgery by manipulating the video camera to aid in direct visualization of the abdominal insides using the monitor. Through the other incisions, surgical tools are inserted and are used to remove the gallbladder. Post-surgical removal of the gallbladder, the incisions are sutured and the patient is shifted to the recovery room.

The option of a minimally invasive Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy may not be available for every patient as the procedure can be complicated by pre-conditions. There can be instances where a patient taken into the theatre for a Laparoscopic removal can end up having to undergo the traditional open surgery.
