Laparoscopic surgery for the gallbladder is now very safe in specialist hands. The surgeon inserts a laparoscope through a small incision in the belly button, among other fine means. The inside view can be seen in an external monitor that helps the surgeon perform the surgical procedure.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia which usually lasts 30 minutes or less. After the procedure, as the gallbladder is removed, the bile flows from the liver through the common bile duct into the small intestine and has no effect on digestion.
Advantages of Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery:
- Through Laparoscopic Surgery, The Recovery is Much Faster With Minimal Pain.
- Patient Can Be Discharged Same Day or Next Morning
- Recovery is Quicker
