Gallbladder Surgery

Central Surgical Associates Logo

Gallbladder disease is caused by conditions that slow or block the flow of bile from the gallbladder. Bile is a fluid that breaks down fat during the digestive process. Inflammation or gallstones can block the bile flow. The treatment you receive depends on the degree of your gallbladder disease, gallstones, and symptoms. Many people with gallstones do not have symptoms and do not need treatment. However,if you have gallbladder pain from gallstones, surgery may be used to remove the gallbladder and remove the gallstones. The most common gallbladder surgery is laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy uses a small lighted camera, a laparoscope, to guide the surgery. A Laparoscopic cholecystectomy uses small incisions, which shortens the recovery time. It is feasible to have the surgery in the morning and return home on the same day.
