Gallbladder surgery

Gallstones are crystal-like deposits in the gallbladder which typically cause severe upper abdominal pain. Cholelithiasis (the presence of gallstones in the gallbladder) can also lead to complications such as inflammation.

Cholelithiasis is usually detected by using an ultrasound scan and is often found by chance in association with another examination.

Gallbladder stones are not treated with dilution anymore, and instead, a cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) is performed. The operation is almost always endoscopic. Endoscopic cholecystectomy is a relatively smooth procedure for the patient. While the length of temporary impairment varies from one technique to another, it is more short-lived with endoscopic cholecystectomy when compared to a traditional open operation. After an open operation, the wound usually takes about one month to heal, whereas healing is twice as fast after endoscopic surgery.

Treatment of gallstones often improves the quality of life. There is no longer any pain, and the patient can enjoy food they had previously been unable to eat. Patients recover fully after the surgery.
