Complex Gallbladder Surgery

What is the gallbladder? Where is it located?

A small pear-shaped organ that helps in the storage and release of bile. Bile is the fluid your liver produces that helps in the digestion of the fats in the food that you eat. It is located in the upper part of the abdomen and sits under your liver.

What is the function of the gall bladder?

It is a part of the digestive system and its main function is to store the bile juice. It helps the digestive system to break down fats. A mixture of cholesterol, bilirubin, and bile salts forms bile.

What is the function of the gallbladder?

Before a person starts eating, the gall bladder is full of bile. When a person eats, the gall bladder receives signals to contract and squeeze the stored bile through the biliary tract. The bile then finds its way to your largest bile duct. The bile then passes through the common passage of the bile duct into the duodenum, which is the first part of your small intestine. Once you are done eating, your gall bladder is empty and resembles a deflated balloon.

What are common issues that affect the gall bladder?

Several issues need to be checked in your gall bladder, one of the most common is gallstones. You can get in touch with the best gallbladder surgeon in Punjab.  Gallstones are generally harmless but can lead to disease states.

The gall bladder stones include:

Gallstone:

The pebble-like objects that are made up of bile material and help in the development of the gallbladder or bile ducts. These vary in size from tiny grain-sized to the size of a golf ball. They aren’t harmful but can cause pain, nausea, and inflammation.

Cholecystitis:

It happens when there is inflammation of your gall bladder. This can occur when the gallstones try to exit your gallbladder. It causes pain, and fever and usually requires surgery.

Gallstone Pancreatitis:

It is an inflammation of the pancreas that occurs when a gallstone travels down the bile duct and causes blockage of the pancreatic duct at a common point.

Gallbladder cancer:

This type of cancer is rare. There might be a pain in the upper quadrant of the abdomen. But there is a possibility of this pain due to other conditions as well.

What are the symptoms of gallbladder problems?

The symptoms of the gallbladder can vary. Some people don’t face any effect of the gallstone present in the body.

You might experience:

  • Upper right abdomen pain
  • Upper mid-abdomen pain
  • Upper right abdominal pain going towards the right shoulder or back.
  • Pain once you consume some fatty meal
  • Jaundice
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Light brown pee

How are gallbladder issues treated?

Most the gallbladder issues are treated with the removal of your gallbladder. The surgery that helps in the removal of your gallbladder is known as cholecystectomy. It is not an essential organ and hence there is nothing wrong if we plan to remove it. But once the gallbladder is removed, bile will flow out of the duct and will go directly into the digestive system.

The surgery can be performed in three ways:

Open Cholecystectomy:

The surgeon performs the surgery through an open incision. Your surgeon may perform an open cholecystectomy if the gallbladder is inflamed severely.

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy:

Through Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy, the surgeon operates through small incisions. This surgery generally leads to a faster recovery and fewer pains with fewer scars.

Robotic Cholecystectomy:

This is the most recent method and is available in a small number of centers.
