About Cholecystectomy Gallbladder Removal

The Experts at miVIP Will Take Care of You and Your Gallbladder

In your body there is a small, pear-shaped organ just beneath your liver called the gallbladder that stores bile and aids in digestion. Individuals who consume a lot of fats might have problems with their gallbladder, and that is especially true if digestive fluids start to flow back into the bile duct.  

If you ever experience a sudden pain in your upper right abdomen or under your sternum that worsens, then you might have a problem with your gallbladder. miVIP offers minimally invasive procedures using the latest medical technology and techniques designed to take care of your gallbladder procedure as efficiently as possible and get you back to your day-to-day routine as soon as possible.

How We Handle Your Procedure

There are two options for removing a patient’s gallbladder: open and laparoscopic. For the laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure:

·       General anesthesia is administered to the patient

·       Your abdominal cavity is inflated with gas in order that the surgeon can see better

·       A small, flexible camera is used to see inside of the stomach

·       Small instruments are utilized to separate and remove the bile duct

·       Imaging scans are taken to ensure all gallstones have been removed

With an open gallbladder removal, the patient is given general anesthesia before a large incision in the abdomen is made in order to access the gallbladder.

Post-Procedure

While you might experience some discomfort after your surgery from the actual procedure, you shouldn’t have the degree of pain that you had with your gallstones. You can also expect to remain in the hospital anywhere from two to four days after your open surgery, during which time you might experience some mild diarrhea for a short while. With a laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure, you will be considered an outpatient. Some of the great things about the laparoscopic surgery include:

·       Diminished scarring

·       Lower chance of bleeding

·       Rapid recovery

·       Lower chance of infection

Cost of Gallbladder Removal

The cost of your open or laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure will be mostly determined by your medical insurance. In any event, we will get in touch with your insurance provider in order to verify your coverage. Should you not have insurance or enough coverage, we will be more than happy to develop a personalized and fair payment plan to suit your financial needs.

Long-Term Prognosis

You will be able to go back to you normal routine once your gallbladder has been removed. With miVIP surgeons taking care of you, you can expect nothing but fantastic results.
