Gallbladder Surgery/Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Gallbladder surgery is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder — a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the upper right side of your abdomen. Your gallbladder collects and stores bile — a digestive fluid produced in your liver. A cholecystectomy is most commonly performed to treat gallstones and the complications they cause.

Your doctor may recommend a cholecystectomy if you have:
- Gallstones in the gallbladder (cholelithiasis)

Frequently Asked Questions
- How successful is the gallbladder surgery?
Ans. Most people can live a normal life without their gallbladder. The patient can resume daily routine after resting for a few days as there are no specific restrictions. One should refrain from engaging in strenuous activities for a few more weeks. Gallbladder surgery is safe and involves minimal to no risks.
- What foods to avoid after gallbladder surgery?
Ans. Avoid foods containing high fat or oil, including whole dairy products. After gallbladder removal, patients must avoid whole milk, cheese, full-fat yogurt, cream or butter, fried foods, high-saturated snacks, spicy food, or foods rich in refined sugar. Drink plenty of water but avoid caffeine (tea, coffee, energy drinks), alcoholic drinks, and carbonated beverages.
- Can a gallbladder grow back?
Ans. No, the gallbladder does not grow back. Neither a gallbladder can repair itself. Only cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) is the optimal treatment for gallstones and its associated complications.
- Is cholecystectomy a high-risk surgery?
Ans. A cholecystectomy is a common surgery with a very low risk of complications. Bleeding, infection, or fever, the complications associated with any other surgery, are related to cholecystectomy, which is rare. Patients can usually go home on the same day of their surgery.
- Which is better, laparoscopic or open surgery cholecystectomy?
Ans. We prefer laparoscopic cholecystectomy as it is more advanced and quick. Patients experience a shorter recovery time due to the small incisions, resulting in less pain and faster healing. Open surgery is usually more painful than a laparoscopic procedure and involves an increased risk of post-surgery complications.
