Gallbladder Surgery

Successful Gallbladder Surgeries by Experienced Surgeons

What is the Gallbladder, Where is the Gallbladder Located?

The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ located just below the liver in the upper right region of the abdomen.  It contributes significantly to the digestive functions of the body with the yellow-green bile that it secretes into the intestines.

What is Gallbladder Stone?

Stone formation in the gallbladder, defined as cholelithiasis, is a problem that usually occurs in developed countries but can be detected in all parts of the world.  The incidence increases with age. Gallstones occur after this digestion-aiding bile contains a very high level of cholesterol and solidifies and forms a precipitate.  The size and number of stones may vary from person to person.

 What Are the Symptoms of Gallstones?

  • Pain in the upper right region of the abdomen that suddenly and rapidly becomes heavy
  • Back pain
  • Pain in the right shoulder
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Excessive gas and other digestive problems

How is Gallbladder Stone Diagnosed?

Diagnosis of the disease;  It is diagnosed by blood, urine, stool tests and ultrasonography (USG), along with typical examination findings.

Ultrasonography is the first test used in the diagnostic approach to gallstones.  With this radiological diagnosis method, even stones as small as 2 mm can be detected.  Findings such as the detection of thickening in the wall of the gallbladder and the presence of fluid around it are the symptoms that indicate that the person has gallbladder inflammation.

How is Gallbladder Surgery and Stone Treatment?

The removal of the gallbladder for the treatment of gallstones is called cholecystectomy.  The gold standard cholecystectomy approach is laparoscopic (closed) surgeries.  If the surgery is not performed laparoscopically for various reasons, the open surgery method may be preferred.

In laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery performed under general anesthesia, the operator makes 3-4 incisions (incisions) in the patient's abdomen.  From these incision areas, small and illuminated surgical instruments are inserted into the patient's abdominal cavity and the gallbladder is removed.  Patients are observed for a while after the operation and can be discharged on the same day or the day after the operation, unless an undesirable situation is encountered.
