What is a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure in which the gallbladder is removed from the body. Laparoscopy aids the removal of the gallbladder while making a few small incisions into the abdomen rather than one major notch. A laparoscope (a thin tube with a camera) is inserted through one incision. This helps the doctor to view the gallbladder on the screen; another incision takes place whereby the gallbladder is removed.

Benefits of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Less Distress than Regular Surgery

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has promptly become the procedure of choice for routine gallbladder removal and is currently the most universally performed major abdominal procedure in Western countries. The ease of procedure and the lesser risks involved in it makes it worthwhile as there are no imperatives.

Shorter Recovery Period

Shorter hospital stay, with a quicker recovery time compared to regular surgery. It usually takes around two weeks to get back to your normal routine for a regular laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Recovery period depends on the incision. The smaller the incision, the more speedy recovery it will be. However, if the incision is large there are more risks involved and extra care is required. For an open cholecystectomy the recovery period is a bit longer, from six to eight weeks.

Back to Normal Routine

You can get back to your normal activities soon after surgery, however walk is recommended. Jobs that require physical exertion or heavy lifting should be avoided. Shorter recovery period helps to regulate normal routine chores so you will not have to be bothered about work.

No Diet Plans Required

High fat foods should be avoided. Smaller proper meals are advised. However, liquids should be taken after surgery to be on the safer side.

Potential Risks

No Life Threatening Complications

There are no massive complications, just a few risks are involved which can also be taken care of if you go along your doctor’s suggestion.

Pain and Bleeding

There might be slight pain and redness at an incision (cut) site. The belly might be swollen. Minor shoulder pain may occur (from the carbon dioxide gas). Bleeding might occur at the site area although the cases are rare. Non-prescription medications are prescribed to relieve pain, if any.


There might be drainage from the cut or bile leakage. Fever and Jaundice is also one of the severe cases that have been reported.

Minor Scars

The wound will take less time to heal. Minor scarring takes little time to heal. The smaller scar would mean fewer chances of infections and other complications.
