What Does Gallbladder Surgery Involve?

Getting your gallbladder removed is a relatively simple procedure but you should still prepare for it just as you would for any other surgery. The first step in surgery preparation is to consult with the top gallbladder surgeons Stony Brook, NY has to offer. They will be able to give you an official diagnosis and determine the best approach for your gallbladder removal.

A laparoscopic cholecystectomy is one of the most common methods for gallbladder removal today. When a surgeon performs a laparoscopic procedure, they make multiple small incisions and use special tools to remove the gallbladder. This is in contrast to the conventional method, known as open surgery, in which the surgeon makes one large incision across the abdominal wall.

By choosing the laparoscopic gallbladder surgery Stony Brook, NY residents trust in, you can enjoy a quicker recovery, better cosmetic results, and a lower risk of complications. You will be able to go home the day of the surgery or the day after and can typically return to your normal activities within a week.

At Long Island Laparoscopic Doctors, we will choose to do laparoscopic procedures whenever possible. Our experienced surgeons will only opt to do an open procedure in certain scenarios in which it is not safe to remove the gallbladder laparoscopically, such as if there is dense scar tissue on the abdomen or if the gallbladder is scarred and inflamed. These situations only happen to a small number of patients while the majority can have laparoscopic procedures.
