Gallbladder Surgeries

 

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

  • Performed for patients with gallstones that are causing pain. 
  • Occasionally, cholecystectomy is required for polyps of a certain size/shape. 
  • Rarely cholecystectomy is offered for patients with biliary pain, even in the absence of gallstones.

Inguinal Hernia

  • Common groin hernias are best repaired with a laparoscopic approach as this results in a rapid recovery. 
  • Occasionally, open surgery is indicated if previous pelvic surgery has been performed. 
  • Prosthetic mesh is used for laparoscopic or open repair.

Umbilical/Incisional Hernia

  • Smaller (< 5cm) hernias are best approached laparoscopically if possible. 
  • Larger hernias require open surgery. 
  • Prosthetic mesh is used with laparoscopic or open repairs.
