A laparoscopic cholecystectomy operation is the surgical removal of the gallbladder by ‘keyhole’ operation. This minimally-invasive surgery is performed in Thailand when little gallstones begin to obstruct the bile ducts causing side effects that can be debilitating.
Gallbladder removal surgery is recommended for those who are suffering from gallbladder stones or gallbladder disease. Since the gallbladder is not a vital organ, the post-operative recovery period, under normal conditions, ranges from a week to ten days.
Keyhole (Laparoscopic) Surgery. The laparoscopic ('keyhole') gallbladder operation is done under a general anaesthetic. A telescope is inserted at the umbilicus (belly-button) so as to give a complete view of the abdominal organs.
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), bandaid surgery, or keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique. There are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus the more common, open procedure. These include reduced pain due to smaller incisions, reduced hemorrhaging and shorter recovery ...

This is where one larger cut is made in your abdomen to remove your gallbladder. Open surgery may be planned in advance, if there are known reasons why you can’t have keyhole surgery. But occasionally, your surgeon may need to convert from a keyhole procedure to open surgery during the operation.
