How Do You Know If You Need Gallbladder Surgery?

Gallbladder removal is a surgical procedure that is frequently performed in the U.S. Your doctor may recommend gallbladder removal, also known as cholecystectomy, if you’ve developed gallstones. Gallstones form when there’s an imbalance in the levels of bile and chemicals in the gallbladder. Gallstones can irritate the lining of the bladder, potentially causing these symptoms:

  • Heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Pain in the center or upper right part of your abdomen
  • Back pain between your shoulder blades

If you believe that you need your gallbladder removed, you need to talk to the gallbladder surgeons Commack, NY counts on most. Your doctor can then determine what the best treatment plan is for you and get started on getting you back to normal.

What Does Gallbladder Surgery Involve?

At Long Island Laparoscopic Doctors, our team can often remove your gallbladder with minimal incisions and a short recovery time. We use a method of gallbladder removal called laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In this procedure, your surgeon will make several tiny incisions and use specific tools to take out your gallbladder. This allows us to avoid making a big incision across your abdomen and doing what is known as an open surgery.

By opting for the laparoscopic gallbladder surgery Commack, NY residents recommend, you have a lower risk of complications, a quicker recovery, and better aesthetic results. You can typically be discharged on the same day of the surgery or the next day. You can usually start doing your normal activities in roughly a week.
