Gallbladder Surgery

Gallstones are small, hard pellets that can form in the gallbladder, and are usually so small and painless that most people don’t even know they’re there. However, if the stones cause the gallbladder to become inflamed — known as cholecystitis — they can cause severe pain and infection, and your doctor may recommend surgery to remove your gallbladder.

Traditional Gallbladder Removal Surgery & Recovery

Traditional gallbladder removal surgery (known as a cholecystectomy) is typically performed using a laparoscope and 3 to 5 small incisions in the abdomen. While laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure, it can still lead to scarring and pain during recovery.
