MAYO: Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal - Sliding the Trocar into the Peritnoeal Cavity

Description:

Laparoscopic Cholesystectomy/ Gallbladder Removal Surgery - Sliding the Trocar into the Peritnoeal Cavity

Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder — a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the upper right side of your abdomen. Your gallbladder collects and stores bile — a digestive fluid produced in your liver.

Cholecystectomy may be necessary if you experience pain from gallstones that block the flow of bile. Cholecystectomy is a common surgery, and it carries only a small risk of complications. In most cases, you can go home the same day of your cholecystectomy.

Cholecystectomy is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder. Doctors call this laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
