Gallstone disease is one of the most common problems of the digestive system. More than 1 in 10 in the UK have gall stones. Gallbladder surgery is one of the most frequent operations carried out in general surgical practice. Gallbladder surgery is carried out as a planned or occasionally as an emergency.
Laparoscopic (Key hole) technique is used commonly to perform the surgery. The surgery is carried out under general anaesthesia and you may need an overnight stay. At the time of the surgery your surgeon will take an x-ray (cholangiogram) to ensure none of the gallstones have migrated in to the bile duct. Should this x-ray show migration of stones you may need another procedure following surgery to extract the stones.
