Laparoscopic Gall Bladder Surgery

What is the gallbladder?

The gallbladder is an organ the shape and size of a small pear. It stores a substance called bile made by the liver. It keeps the bile until the body needs it to digest fatty foods.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is minimally invasive surgery to remove the gallbladder. It helps people when gallstones cause inflammation, pain or infection. The surgery involves a few small incisions, and most people go home the same day and soon return to normal activities.

What are the benefits of gallbladder removal?

Removing the gallbladder will stop the pain and treat the infection caused by gallstones. It can also stop gallstones from coming back.

If gallstones are not treated, pain and infection can get worse. The gallbladder may burst, which can be life-threatening.
