Gallbladder Removal Surgery in Mumbai

What Exactly Is a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy?

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is a procedure that removes the gallbladder via small incisions on the abdomen rather than a single major incision. The gallbladder is a small pouch located under the right side of the liver. The main function of the gallbladder is to collect and concentrate a digestive liquid (called bile) produced by the liver. Bile is released from the gallbladder and transported to the small intestine through bile ducts which helps in the digestion process by breaking the fats.

What is the procedure for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy?

The surgeon will make three or four small incisions in your abdomen while you are under general anesthesia. The laparoscope will be introduced via one of the incisions, and medical devices will be put through the other incision. The abdomen is expanded with gas, allowing the doctor more space to operate.

The surgeon will cut the duct and blood vessels that lead to the gallbladder, then remove the gallbladder with the laparoscope.

Most patients have minor incision soreness, nausea, and possibly shoulder pain for a few days after surgery, but most return to regular activities within a week.
