If you have gallstones, it is important to seek advice to discuss your options on how to relieve symptoms and prevent other complications. A Gallbladder removal is an effective treatment for gallstones that can provide relief and improve your quality of life.
What is the gallbladder?
The gallbladder is the organ that stores a fluid produced by the liver called bile. When we eat, the body releases bile into the small intestine as it helps to break down foods (specifically fatty foods).
Gallstones can form when the bile stored in the gallbladder hardens into a stone-like substance. Gallstones range in size from a grain of sand to a golf ball. Symptoms are not always present, so anyone can have gallstones without knowing it. However, gallstones can also cause severe pain and other symptoms that can impact your daily life.
How does the removal work?
When you have experienced attacks of pain caused by gallstones, one of the most appropriate and effective treatment is to have an operation to remove the gallbladder. Known as a laparoscopic cholecystectomy it is a minimally invasive procedure whereby a surgeon removes the gallbladder.
This procedure is normally performed under general anaesthetic and takes about an hour to complete. The procedure involves a few small incisions, and most people go home the same day.
