Various conditions can affect the gallbladder, leading to discomfort and potential complications. Gallbladder surgery may be necessary when conservative treatments fail to alleviate symptoms. The gallbladder is a small organ located beneath the liver that plays a vital role in the digestion of fats. At Lenox Hill Surgeons, a leading general surgery practice in New York City, our team of expert surgeons specializes in gallbladder surgery, offering patients effective surgical solutions for gallbladder disorders. In this comprehensive article, we will explore common gallbladder disorders, their symptoms, and the surgical interventions available to provide relief and restore well-being.
Gallstones are one of the most common disorders affecting the gallbladder. They are formed when substances in bile, such as cholesterol or bilirubin, harden into stone-like particles. Gallstones can range in size and quantity, and they can cause various symptoms, including:
Gallstones often cause intense pain in the upper right abdomen or in the middle of the abdomen just below the breastbone. The pain can be recurrent and may radiate to the back or shoulder.
Gallstone-related pain can lead to feelings of nausea and sometimes result in vomiting.
In some cases, gallstones can obstruct the bile duct, leading to a buildup of bilirubin in the body. This can cause yellowing of the skin and eyes, known as jaundice.
Gallstones can disrupt the normal flow of bile, leading to indigestion, bloating, and a feeling of fullness after meals.
When gallstones or other gallbladder disorders cause significant symptoms or complications, gallbladder surgery is often recommended. The most common surgical intervention for gallbladder removal is called cholecystectomy. There are two primary approaches to cholecystectomy:
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that utilizes small incisions and specialized instruments. The surgeon inserts a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera, to visualize the surgical area. The gallbladder is then removed through small incisions, resulting in less post-operative pain, faster recovery, and minimal scarring.
Open cholecystectomy is a traditional surgical approach that involves making a larger incision in the abdomen to remove the gallbladder. While it requires a larger incision and longer recovery time compared to laparoscopic cholecystectomy, open cholecystectomy may be necessary in certain cases, such as when there are complications or if laparoscopic surgery is not feasible.
At Lenox Hill Surgeons, we understand the impact gallbladder disorders can have on your daily life. Our team of experienced general surgeons specializes in gallbladder surgery and provides individualized care to meet your specific needs. We utilize advanced techniques and state-of-the-art technology to ensure optimal surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
