Gall Stone Surgery at GNH Hospital Gurgaon, India
What is Cholecystectomy?
Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder which is a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the right side of the abdomen. The gallbladder collects and stores bile, a digestive fluid produced in the liver.
At GNH Hospital, Gurgaon, India we generally perform the operation through a Laparoscopic technique.

What is done during the Cholecystectomy surgery?
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a common surgery and carries only a small risk of complications. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder.In some cases one large incision may be used to remove the gallbladder. This is called an open cholecystectomy.
During a laparoscopic Cholecystectomy, a thin tube is inserted into the body through a tiny cut made just below your navel. The surgeon can then see your gallbladder on a monitor screen and performs the surgery with tools inserted in three other small cuts made in the right upper part of your abdomen. The gallbladder is then taken out through one of the incisions.
With laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the patient may return to work sooner, have less pain after surgery, and have a shorter hospital stay and a shorter recovery time.
After the Cholecystectomy Surgery
At GNH Hospital, Gurgaon, India we discharge the patient the next day after laparscopic cholecystectomy. The patient can resume to work on the 3rd or 4th day after the discharge from the hospital.
