The laparoscopic approach is the “gold standard” approach for cholecystectomy. Earlier only simple cases were performed laparoscopically, but with the advent of better technology and techniques, more difficult cases are being performed laparoscopically. The need to convert to an open technique by making a large cut (incision) on the abdomen rarely arises.
In this procedure, the best gallbladder laparoscopic surgeon in Kolkata makes some small cuts (incisions) in your abdomen. He/she inserts air or carbon dioxide into your abdomen to inflate it. This is necessary to have a clear view of your abdomen. The surgeon inserts a video camera (laparoscope) and a lighted scope through an incision near your belly button. While inserting surgical instruments through the other incisions and removing the gall bladder, the surgeon views the images sent by the laparoscope on a monitor in the operation room. There is the use of general anaesthesia during this procedure.
