Description

Surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder is Cholecystectomy. Gallbladder is an organ in the right side of your abdomen below the liver. Cholecystectomy is generally performed for treating gallstones. Treatment for gallstones involves either medication to dissolve stones or surgery to remove the gallbladder. Medication may take months or years for the stones to dissolve completely and is generally reserved for those who are unable to undergo surgery. Cholecystectomy is a common procedure that allows bile to flow directly from the liver into the small intestine rather than being stored in the gallbladder. Though the body can no longer store bile, gallbladder removal does not affect oneís ability to digest food and the organ is not essential for survival. Cholecystectomy can be performed in 2 ways: Open Cholecystectomy, in which the surgeon makes a six-inch incision in the abdomen, and requires two to three days hospitalizationLaparoscopic Cholecystectomy, in which the surgeon makes four small incisions and uses a laparoscope and other special instruments. Patients are released on the same day or might require an overnight stay at the hospital.
