Gallbladder surgery may be recommended for a variety of conditions that affect the gallbladder, including cancer and gallstones.
 
The gallbladder is an organ located in the abdomen. It stores the bile used for digestion. When necessary, the bile moves through a duct to the small intestine. When gallstones or tumors block the duct, it can cause backup of bile or inflammation of the gallbladder, which can result in pain, fever, and nausea.
 
During gallbladder surgery, or cholecystectomy, the organ is removed. This eliminates the blockage and any diseased or damaged tissue. Patients can live a normal life without the gallbladder.
 
While gallbladder surgery is a serious surgical procedure, Florida Hospital offers qualified patients a less invasive treatment option. Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery reduces the size of the incision necessary for surgery. The doctor uses specialized tools and imaging technology to perform the procedure, reducing risks, scarring, pain and improving recovery time.
