When managing any medical condition becomes difficult or impossible by conservative treatment methods, surgery in most cases, is considered to be the last option. One such surgical procedure is Gallbladder removal surgery or cholecystectomy, which is the total excision of gallbladder tissue from the abdomen.
The gallbladder is a tiny but important part of the digestion process. Situated beneath the liver, it is responsible for storage of bile, which is used later on to aid the digestion of fats.We have Gall Bladder Removal / Cholecystectomy price information in 8 cities.

A cholecystectomy can be performed using either of the two techniques:
This is a minimally invasive technique which is accomplished with the help of a thin tube known as laparoscope. A tiny camera is attached to the tip of this device which aids in the visualization of the internal body structures.
Small incisions, roughly 3-4 in number are made in the abdomen from which the laparoscope is inserted in the abdomen. Special surgical instruments are used to remove the gallbladder whilst having a view of the internal structures at the same time.
This technique is relatively faster, easier to perform and has a better recovery time than the traditional cholescystectomy.
There can be some instances where the laparoscope may reveal that a minimally invasive technique will not prove to be useful. Hence, an open surgery will be imminent.
Traditional (Open) Method
As compared to the laparoscopic method, the open method of surgery involves making a large cut over the region corresponding to the location of the gall bladder and excising it.
An open surgery takes more time to recover than a laparoscopic surgery.
After the surgery is complete, it is common to experience some changes in the way your body handles food, but with the right care and precautions, you can sail through comfortably.
Cholecystectomy is a very safe procedure with good recovery rates. A general surgeon will help you understand the procedure and clear any doubts you might have in mind.
