Cholecystectomy Surgery

Safely Removing a Diseased Gallbladder

The gallbladder is a small organ that many people might not able to accurately describe if asked. Its function is to aid in digestion by producing bile for the small intestine. It is considered to be one of the least essential organs and is often removed entirely if it becomes clogged with gallstones or infected.

One way to tell if your gallbladder is infected is if you have experiences sharp pain in the upper right portion of the abdomen between the right shoulder blade and the breastbone. Gallbladder or Cholecystectomy surgery may be required if your gallbladder has become too inflamed to ever fully recover. The miVIP Surgery Center can help you decide the best way to safely remove your gallbladder.

Minimally Invasive Gallbladder Surgery

Although the gallbladder is a small organ, you should still choose a surgery option that is as minimally invasive as possible. At miVIP Surgery Centers, you can be confident going into your surgery knowing that you will recover quickly. You may require surgery if you have been diagnosed with:

  • Gallstones
  • A blocked bile duct
  • Cholecystitis, or an inflamed gallbladder

Our experienced doctors perform cholecystectomy surgery by making a tiny incision, then filling the abdominal cavity with a non-harmful gas to get a better view of the surgery site. Using miniscule cameras and instruments, the doctor can then cut the infected gallbladder away from the bile duct, and check for any gallstones that could be lodged or left behind in the duct.

Our miVIP Surgeons

The surgeons employed at miVIP Surgery Centers are very experienced and trained extensively to perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery. Before your surgery, you will discuss your symptoms and situation personally with a doctor so that both you and your attending physician are prepared adequately. With their expert advice and surgical skill, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands during your procedure.

Gallbladder Surgery and Recovery

The goal of a complete gallbladder removal is to lessen the discomfort and pain of gallstones or a diseased gall tissue. Although minimally invasive surgeries should substantially shorten your recovery, you will still likely experience some pain. However, the benefits of having your gallbladder removed at our surgery facility are immediately apparent. Some of them are:

  • Less bleeding
  • Lower infection risks
  • Little to no scarring
  • Recovery at home instead of in the hospital.

As with any type of medical procedure, you should be on the lookout for symptoms that could indicate a problem after undergoing gallbladder surgery. Contact your doctor if you experience:

  • Chest pains
  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent nausea or vomiting
  • Bright redness around your surgery site
  • Sharp or unbearable abdominal pain

How Much Cholecystectomy Surgery Costs

Often, medical insurance will cover the cost of gallbladder surgery, but in the event that yours does not, you can speak with one of our financing specialists. We are more than willing to work you to create a payment plan that is ideal for your needs.

Long Term Affects of Gallbladder Removal

Since the gallbladder is not vital, you can fully recover from cholecystectomy surgery and live a completely normal life. If you have questions about possible diet or lifestyle changes that can make your recovery easier, speak to your physician before undergoing surgery
