Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the gallbladder. The collection of bile in the gallbladder, the pear-shaped organ below your liver, can lead to the formation of gallstones that can lead to numerous complications. Brand Surgical Institute offers minimally invasive cholecystectomy surgeries to remove the gallbladder and treat the associated complications without harsh complications or extended downtime.
How can a Cholecystectomy help you?
Why is cholecystectomy performed?
Cholecystectomy is performed to treat gallstones and the associated complications of gallstones. Your surgeon may recommend a cholecystectomy if you have pancreatic inflammation (pancreatitis) due to gallstones, gallbladder polyps, gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis), gallstones in the bile duct (choledocholithiasis), or gallstones in the gallbladder (cholelithiasis). You should contact your doctor if you experience sudden and rapid pain in the upper right portion of the abdomen — that’s a telltale sign of gallstones.
Signs and symptoms indicating
you may need a cholecystectomy:
- Sudden and intense pain in the upper right corner of the abdomen
- Sudden and intense pain just below the breastbone
- Severe pain between the shoulder blades
- Severe pain in the right shoulder
