In this procedure, the gallbladder stones are removed by minimally invasive techniques. Gallbladder is an organ that resembles a pear fruit and its vital function is to release the bile juice which helps in the digestive process. Removal of gall bladder happens due to the presence of gallstones. The gallstones obstruct the flow of bile juice and hence cause swelling, vomiting, abdominal pain and sometimes fever. In laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the surgeon makes only four small incisions in the abdomen wherein the patient has less pain and can go home on the same day.
The appendix is a long tube-like structure that is attached to the colon and when it gets infected, a surgery is performed to remove it as it is vestigial organ.
