Apart from this, severe inflammation of the gallbladder and pancreas are often some of the underlying medical cause which might need to remove the gallbladder.

It only might have a few short-term discomforts such as disruptive bowel habits and loose stools, that too resolves within a week or two.

Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery

Now in the present day, with medical advancement, we have access to laparoscopic gallbladder surgery that allows us to avail painless treatment with quality results.

How is Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery different from open Surgery?

Though the objective of laparoscopic surgery and open surgery remains the same – elimination of the problem, the approach is relatively different. In case of open surgery, the surgeon makes a big incision in the patient’s body and then executes the surgery. On the other hand, under laparoscopic surgery, instead of making a big incision, the surgeon makes 2-3 small incisions in the patient’s body. Once of such an incision is used to insert a camera whereby the surgeon is able to view the gallbladder on a large TV screen attached to the surgery room. So instead of looking into the patient’s body through the naked eyes, the surgeon gets a clearer view of the patient’s gallbladder on a TV screen.

Once the view is clear, the surgeon uses various tools to operate through the small incisions. The result of such surgery is that the patient faces minimum pain and a quicker recovery period. Additionally, the view of the gallbladder is much clearer on the TV screen than in case of open surgery and hence, the rate of accuracy is also higher.

Is Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery expensive?

This surgery is high on quality but more convenient on price. As compared to open surgery and its post-surgery maintenance and expenses, Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery is cheaper. With open surgery, a patient needs to under a big incision, then the period of recovery in the hospital is also long. Added to it, the cost of medicines that would heal the incision also needs to take care of for a longer duration. Alternatively, laparoscopic surgery is executed through small incisions which heal quickly. The period of recovery is also small; hence, patients can easily be discharged from the hospital within 3-4 days of the surgery. Taking all the connected expenses into account, laparoscopic surgery is the economical option.

Thus, every patient who is expecting to have a gallbladder surgery in the future are recommended to seek consultation regarding the preferred mode of surgery.
