    Cholecystectomy (gallbladder surgery)

    A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder, a small pear-shaped organ that sits under the liver. It collects and stores bile, a digestive fluid produced in the liver. Your doctor may require gallbladder removal if gallstones cause severe pain and other complications.

    Why You Might Need a Cholecystectomy?

    Gallbladder surgery is required if you have:

    • Inflamed gallbladder
    • Pancreas inflammation caused by gallstones
    • Gallstones in the gallbladder
    • Gallstones in the bile duct

    Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

    A laparascopic cholecystectomy is a technique that uses four small incisions in your abdomen to remove your gallbladder. A laparascope, a narrow tube with a camera is inserted into your abdomen through one of the incisions to allow your surgeon to see your gallbladder on a screen. Then your surgeon will remove your gallbladder through another incision. Patients go home the same day as their surgery. This minimally-invasive procedure allows the patient to recover quicker and have less scarring after the surgery.

    Types of Hemorrhoids

    There are two types of hemorrhoids:

    • Internal: hemorrhoids form in the lower rectum
    • External: hemorrhoids form around the anus
