Gallbladder & Bile Duct

Removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy) is one of the commonest surgical procedures performed in the United States. Since it was first performed in the mid 1980s, laparoscopic cholecystectomy has replaced conventional surgery as the “gold-standard” for almost all conditions that affect the gallbladder.

Pain from passing gallstones, acute inflammation of the gallbladder and severe infections are now routinely treated with laparoscopy. Even when stones pass into the common bile duct they can be removed using laparoscopic techniques with success rates equivalent to endoscopic removal (called ERCP).
