What is Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy?

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a state-of-the-art surgical procedure offered by Electiva aor gallbladder removal. This minimally invasive approach involves making a few small incisions in the abdomen, through which specialized surgical instruments and a laparoscope (a thin tube with a camera) are inserted. The laparoscope provides a clear view of the gallbladder and surrounding structures, enabling our skilled surgeons to precisely remove the gallbladder. This technique offers numerous advantages, including reduced scarring, less post-operative pain, faster recovery, and shorter hospital stays compared to traditional open surgery. Electiva’s expert surgical team performs laparoscopic cholecystectomy with utmost precision and care, ensuring the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Why Have Gallbladder Removal Treatment?

Gallbladder removal treatment, or cholecystectomy, is recommended for various gallbladder-related conditions. The most common reason is the presence of gallstones, which can cause intense pain, inflammation, and other complications. Other indications for gallbladder removal may include gallbladder polyps, gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis), or the presence of a diseased or malfunctioning gallbladder. Electiva’s gallbladder removal treatment offers a definitive solution to alleviate these issues and improve overall quality of life. By removing the gallbladder, patients can experience relief from pain, avoid further complications, and regain normal digestive function. Our experienced team at Electiva is committed to providing personalized care and guiding patients through the decision-making process to ensure the best treatment plan for their specific condition.

Electiva's Methods of Gallbladder Removal

Key Hole Surgery: The surgeon make 3 to 4 holes in the abdomen and inserts carbon dioxide gas to inflate the abdomen. Instruments are inserted using the other holes (ports), one of which is a laparoscopic camera. Other ports are used to insert other laparoscopic instruments such as scissors or instruments to tie knots. This procedure usually takes an hour. You may be able to go home the same day after procedure or may need 1 night stay in the hospital. Occasionally, the surgeon may need to convert a Key Hole surgery to Open surgery if there are difficulties in completing the procedure or complications.

Open Surgery: The surgeon makes an incision over the right upper part of the abdomen. The common method is usually Key Hole surgery and Open method is reserved in certain situations only. The operation will take around an hour to two hours. You will need admission to hospital for 2 days.

What Happens at The Treatment?

At Electiva, gallbladder removal treatment begins with a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s medical history and diagnostic tests to confirm the need for surgery. On the day of the procedure, patients are given general anesthesia to ensure their comfort throughout the surgery. Our skilled surgeons then perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy, making small incisions in the abdomen and inserting specialized instruments and a laparoscope. The laparoscope provides a magnified view of the surgical area, enabling precise removal of the gallbladder. Once the gallbladder is carefully dissected and detached from its attachments, it is extracted through one of the small incisions. After the procedure, patients are closely monitored during the recovery period, and post-operative care instructions are provided to promote healing and a smooth recovery. Electiva’s dedicated healthcare team ensures that patients receive exceptional care and support throughout the gallbladder removal treatment process.

What is laparoscopic cholecystectomy ?

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed to remove the gallbladder using small incisions in the abdomen. It is a widely accepted method for treating gallbladder-related conditions.

How long does the procedure take?

On average, laparoscopic cholecystectomy takes about one hour. However, the duration may vary depending on individual factors and the complexity of the case.

Will I experience pain after the surgery?

Pain levels can vary among individuals, but it is common to experience mild to moderate discomfort after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The surgical team will provide pain management options to help control any post-operative pain.

What is the recovery time?

Recovery time for laparoscopic cholecystectomy is typically shorter compared to traditional open surgery. Most patients can expect to resume normal activities within two weeks. However, individual recovery times may vary depending on factors such as overall health and the nature of the surgery.

Are there any dietary restrictions after the surgery?

In the initial days following the procedure, a clear liquid diet is usually recommended. Gradually, patients can transition to a normal diet based on their surgeon’s instructions. It’s important to follow any dietary guidelines provided to promote proper healing and digestion.

Will there be scars after the surgery?

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy involves small incisions, usually less than an inch in length. These incisions are strategically placed to minimize scarring. Over time, the scars typically fade and become less noticeable.

What are the potential risks or complications?

While laparoscopic cholecystectomy is considered safe, every surgical procedure carries some risks. Potential complications may include bleeding, infection, bile duct injury, or complications related to anesthesia. Your surgeon will discuss these risks with you prior to the procedure.

Can gallstones recur after the surgery?

Once the gallbladder is removed, the chances of gallstone recurrence are minimal. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, to minimize the risk of developing new stones in the bile ducts.

Will I need to stay overnight in the hospital?

In most cases, laparoscopic cholecystectomy is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to go home on the same day. However, occasionally, an overnight stay may be recommended based on individual circumstances.

Can laparoscopic cholecystectomy be performed on all patients?

While laparoscopic cholecystectomy is suitable for the majority of patients, there may be instances where open surgery is preferred or necessary. Factors such as the patient’s medical history, the presence of complications, or anatomical variations may influence the choice of surgical approach. Your surgeon will determine the most appropriate method based on your specific situation.
