The removal of the gallbladder is a common procedure that is best performed through laparoscopic surgery. Depending on the nature of the case and laparoscopic equipment, up to 4 incisions of between 0.5-1 cm are made to perform a Cholecystectomy. The laparoscopic apparatus then allows the surgeon to drain the gallbladder and extracting it through the small incision. These small incisions heal much faster than traditional surgical incisions, allowing the patient to return home soon after surgery.
