What is Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy?
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder. It is recommended to people who developed gallstones that cause inflammation, pain or infection. The surgery involves a few small incisions, and most people go home the same day and soon return to normal activities. This procedure is often recommended if you develop any problems with it.
The laparoscopic procedure is recommended because it has several benefits such as lesser pain, lower risk of complications, quicker recovery and return to regular activities, and smaller wounds and scars. The whole operation is performed under a general anaesthetic and usually lasts between 1 and 2 hours.
