Biliary Dyskinesia

Eliminate Biliary Dyskinesia With a Cholecystectomy

For being such a small organ, the gallbladder can develop a wide range of problems including biliary dyskinesia. This disorder affects the flow of bile from the gallbladder into the small intestine. The miVIP Surgery Clinic can easily repair this condition by completely removing the gallbladder with the help of a cholecystectomy procedure.

Since the gallbladder is not necessary for normal body functions, a minimally invasive cholecystectomy is often the best choice for patients seeking treatment for gallbladder disorders. With a shorter recovery time post-surgery, patients can get back on their feet sooner and have relief from their symptoms.

Prevalence of Biliary Dyskinesia

Both men and women can experience this gallbladder malfunction, but it is much more common for women. Overweight females who are middle-aged are the most high-risk for almost every gallbladder ailment.

Common Causes

When bile cannot be secreted into the small intestine, it is returned to the gallbladder. The result is biliary dyskinesia. This condition is actually a symptom of different diseases, such as:

  • Gallstones
  • Pancreatitis
  • Inflammation of the gallbladder
  • Allergic reaction to specific foods
  • Digestive disorders

Stress or unhealthy diets may also encourage this disorder.

Recognizing the Symptoms

As mentioned above, biliary dyskinesia is in itself a symptom of other diseases. However, there may be physical indications that the gallbladder is failing to secrete bile into the intestines properly. The notable symptoms are:

  • Nausea after eating a meal high in fat
  • Aching near the gallbladder—the upper right of the torso, between the breastbone and the right rib
  • Acute cramps below the right rib cage

Cholecystectomy Treatment

If a doctor discovers that this condition is causing the backflow of bile and is severe enough to merit completely removing the gallbladder, a patient has several potential treatment options. The miVIP surgical Centers offer three gallbladder removal surgeries:

  1. Cholecystectomy Surgery – This is a laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure that utilizes a small camera and precise surgical tools to cut out the gallbladder.
  2. da Vinci Cholecystectomy – Our miVIP surgeons are qualified to offer this robotic surgical option that requires a single small incision to fully remove the gallbladder.
  3. da Vinci Multi-Port Cholecystectomy – Similar to the previous procedures, this da Vinci powered surgery requires several incisions to fully remove infected or diseased gallbladder tissue.

Long Term Benefits

Patients find relief from symptoms in 95 percent of cases where a cholecystectomy procedure has been used to remove the gallbladder. If the conditions persist after undergoing surgery, it is crucial that patients contact a doctor immediately.
