Minimally Invasive Cholecystectomy or Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy 

The surgeon makes four small incisions in your abdomen and inserts a tiny video camera through one of the incisions. Surgical tools are inserted through the other incisions in the abdomen to remove the gallbladder. Our expert laparoscopic surgeon watches through a video monitor while operating upon you to perform the surgery. The operation may take up to one to two hours.

Sometimes, the surgeon may begin with a laparoscopic approach and may have to switch over to make a larger incision because of scar tissue from previous operations or complications.

Open cholecystectomy:
