What Does a Cholecystectomy Treat?

Your doctor may recommend cholecystectomy if you have:

  • Cholelithiasis: gallstones in the gallbladder
  • Cholecystitis: inflammation of the gallbladder
  • Pancreatitis: inflammation of the pancreas

How Is Gallbladder Removal Performed?

Cholecystectomy is performed using general anaesthesia so that you won’t be awake during the procedure. During laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the surgeon makes four small incisions in the abdomen. A laparoscope with a tiny video camera attached is inserted into the abdomen through one of the incisions, enabling the surgeon to view inside the abdomen. The surgeon inserts special surgical tools through the other incisions and safely removes the gallbladder (with the stones inside it).
