Having laparoscopic cholecystectomy
Small incisions are made in your abdomen, and the scope is put through one of the incisions. Surgical tools are put through other incisions. Small clips are used to close the connection between the gallbladder and the bile duct. The gallbladder can be detached from the liver. The gallbladder is removed through one of the incisions; bile still flows from the liver to the small intestine.
Once the gallbladder removal surgery is done, all tools are removed, and incisions are closed with stitches or staples. Sometimes, a laparoscopic surgery may need to be changed to an open surgery using one large incision. This change may occur because of scar tissue, unusual anatomy or for some other reason.
