Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery

“Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is a minimally invasive procedure performed to remove a diseased gallbladder through small incisions in the abdomen. A thin flexible tube called a laparoscope which contains a camera and light source along with special instruments, are used to carry out the procedure. Gallbladder surgery is performed to treat gallstones,gallbladder disease which produces symptoms such as pain, nausea, vomiting and fever, as well as to treat gallbladder cancer. The diseasedgallbladder may be safely removed through surgery as it is not vital for health or digestion. Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery may not be ideal if you have severe gallbladder disease, obesity or a history of abdominalsurgery.”
