Diseases of the Gallbladder

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy, or removal of the gallbladder using minimally invasive techniques, has become standard of care for treatment of a variety of diseases of the gallbladder. The most common conditions necessitating this operation include symptomatic cholelithiasis (pain, nausea, bloating, belching caused by gallstones), acute or chronic cholecystitis (infection of the gallbladder), choledocholithiasis (stones in the bile ducts), and gallstone pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas caused by passage of small gallstones.)

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy offers advantages over the traditional approach, with smaller incisions, less pain, faster recovery and return to work.
