What is Gallbladder removal treatment ?
There are two main types of gallbladder removal procedures:
1. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: This minimally invasive procedure involves making small incisions in the abdomen through which a laparoscope (a thin tube with a camera) and surgical instruments are inserted. The surgeon visualizes the area on a monitor and removes the gallbladder.
2. Open Cholecystectomy: In some cases, traditional open surgery may be necessary. This involves a larger incision in the abdomen to directly access and remove the gallbladder. Open cholecystectomy is typically reserved for complex cases. After gallbladder removal, bile flows directly from the liver into the small intestine, bypassing the gallbladder. Patients can still lead a normal, healthy life without a gallbladder, although dietary adjustments may be recommended.
