Cholecystectomy

Cholecystectomy at Fitzwilliam Hospital

cholecystectomy

This is a very common procedure performed to surgically remove your gallbladder. It is normally performed if you have painful gallstones, such as repeated and intense abdominal pain. Gallstones are small stones that may be created in your gallbladder due to imbalances in your bile.

It is most often performed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy, that involves your surgeon making several small cuts in your abdomen and inserting fine surgical instruments to access and remove your gallbladder. Open cholecystectomy may be recommended and involves a single, larger incision in your abdomen to remove your gallbladder.

A laparoscopic cholecystectomy operation is performed under a general anaesthetic and usually takes about an hour. You should be able to go home the same day.
