Laparoscopic Colocystectomy  - Gallbladder Surgery

The gallbladder is located under the liver and stores bile, which is necessary for the digestion of fats. If the content of bile changes, cholesterol crystals form, these crystals can combine with bile salts and pigments to form gallstones. These stones are often asymptomatic and may appear during routine screening.

However, some stones create symptoms that can range from a mild discomfort to severe pain. The pain is classically located in the upper right part of the abdomen and increases after a fatty meal. If your complaints are determined to be due to gallstones, surgery should be performed and your gallbladder should be removed.

Gallbladder surgery can be performed as open surgery with an incision to be applied to the abdomen, or it can be performed laparoscopically. In laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the gallbladder is removed with a camera and surgical instruments sent to the abdomen through a small incision.

What are the advantages of laparoscopic surgery over open surgery?

  1. In laparoscopic surgeries, there is no need to cut the abdominal muscles as in open surgical procedures.

  2. You will return to your daily life and work faster after laparoscopic surgery. In fact, most of the laparoscopic surgeries are performed on a daily basis.

  3.  You will have less pain after surgery.

  4.  Your hospital stay is shorter. Even if you have more than one incision, each incision is very small and heals faster than an open surgical incision.

What are the barriers to laparoscopic surgery?

  1. Previous abdominal surgery, especially surgery in the area around the gallbladder

  2. Excessive bleeding tendency

  3. Any condition that would prevent the surgeon from seeing the gallbladder laparoscopically

  4. Your doctor will decide which type of surgery is suitable for you.

What are the complications of laparoscopic cholecystectomy?

Complications include bleeding, infection, and injury to the bile ducts, which may also occur in open surgery. Intestinal and large vessel injuries may occur in laparoscopic procedures. All these complications are rare.
