Laproscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Your doctor will determine whether you need an open cholecystectomy or a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Open Cholecystectomy
When an open cholecystectomy is performed, a single incision is made below the rib cage and the gallbladder is removed.

After the cystic duct has been closed, bile will flow from the liver to the small intestine.

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
When a laparoscopic cholecystectomy is performed, several tiny incisions are made. A laparoscope allows the doctor to view the surgical process on a screen and the gallbladder is then removed through one of the tiny incisions.
