Cholecystectomy

Cholecystectomy

A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure that is conducted to remove the gallbladder which is a pear-shaped organ and is located just below the liver on the upper right side of the abdomen.

The function of the gallbladder is to collect and store bile which is a digestive fluid produced in the liver.

A cholecystectomy carries only a small risk of complications. In most cases, the patient is able to go home the same day of the procedure. It is commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through small incisions to see inside the abdomen and thus remove the gallbladder. This is also sometimes referred to as a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Why it's done?

  • Cholelithiasis or Gallstones in the gallbladder
  • Choledocholithiasis or Gallstones in the bile duct
  • Cholecystitis or Gallbladder inflammation
  • Pancreatitis or Pancreas inflammation due to gallstones
  • Large gallbladder polyps

 


 


More About Treatment

Types of Cholecystectomy:

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy:
A laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a surgery during which the doctor removes the gallbladder. This procedure uses several small cuts instead of a large one. A laparoscope which is a narrow tube with a camera, is inserted through one incision. This allows the doctor to see the gallbladder on a screen. Following this, the gallbladder is then removed through another small incision.

Open Cholecystectomy:
An open cholecystectomy might be required instead of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy either because of a major scarring from a previous surgery, a bleeding disorder, a condition that would make it difficult to see through the laparoscope.

In this procedure, a single cut is made below the right side of the rib cage or in the center of the abdomen. The gallbladder is cut away from surrounding tissue. The blood supply is tied off and divided. Sometimes a cholangiogram or a special X-ray is done to check for stones in the common bile duct. If there are stones in the common bile duct, they are removed at the time. The skin is closed using surgical clips and stitches.
