Gall bladder surgery

The gallbladder is the organ responsible for storing and secreting bile to facilitate the digestive process of foods such as meat or fat. Gallbladder stones, the inability of the organ to empty properly, inflammation (cholecystitis), or a chronic condition are some of the most common causes for which gallbladder surgery is recommended.

The most common symptoms may include: pain in the abdomen, nausea, vomiting, fever, and chills.


The most common surgical procedure is a gallbladder laparoscopy, also called laparoscopic cholecystectomy, in which a laparoscope and the instruments necessary to remove the damaged organ are inserted through three to four small openings in the abdomen. Also, an open gallbladder operation can be performed, a traditional process that leaves a more pronounced scar, although it may be necessary if gallbladder removal presents complications.

The prognosis for recovery is usually quick, even so, following medical recommendations is essential to achieve complete improvement. If you want more information about gallbladder surgery and its price, do not hesitate to write to us.
