Gallbladder Removal Surgery in Austin
The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ under the liver on the upper right side of a person’s abdomen. Its function is to store and collect digestive fluid that the liver creates.
A person may elect to have gallbladder removal surgery (also known as cholecystectomy) if they experience:
- Gallstones in the gallbladder
- Gallstones in the bile duct
- Gallbladder inflammation
- Gallbladder polyps
- Pancreas inflammation
Gallbladder Removal Surgery at B+A Surgeons
Our gallbladder surgery is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Most patients who have gallbladder removal surgery get to go home the same day they have the procedure.
Gallbladder Recovery Time
Most patients can resume their daily activities seven days after surgery. To help decrease the risk of developing a hernia, we recommend not lifting any heavy items for 6 weeks after surgery.
Gallbladder Removal Benefits
If you have painful gallstones, gallbladder removal is the most effective treatment option. Gallbladder surgery also benefits patients with other gallbladder conditions, such as biliary dyskinesia, gallbladder polyps, and tumors.
