The gallbladder is where bile produced by the liver is stored. When we eat, the gallbladder contracts and expels its contents that meets the food to promote absorption of food.

Bile is composed of various components such as cholesterol, hormones, bile salts... when the ratio is not accurate these components precipitate leading to the appearance of stones.

We operate on patients who:

- Have symptomatic gallbladder stones. This is to prevent complications caused by these stones pancreatitis, bile infections (cholangitis ), inflammation of the gallbladder ( colecisitits ), among others.

- Another reason to operate when the gallbladder is displayed certain sizes of polyps in the gallbladder


gallbladder surgery Minilaparoscopic

Laparoscopy has been one of the greatest advances in abdominal surgery in the last 100 years. Allows abdominal surgeries without opening the abdomen. General anesthesia is required and the average surgery time is 40 minutes.

This provides faster recovery and fewer complications. Slowly and with the advancement of technology along with the acquisition of the skill of the surgeons we can go by decreasing abdominal trauma increasingly using small tweezers.

We are synonymous with mini laparoscopy laparoscopy or micro - needlescopy


Postoperative gallbladder surgery

The patient can restart the diet 6 hours after surgery. He may also start ambulation and finally be discharged from hospital between 12 and 24 hours after intervention. Once at home it is back to normal life. Should avoid gaining weight for a month and must follow a fat-free diet during the same period.

The advantages of this technique is that every time takes less trauma to the abdominal wall, thus appear less complications. Also presents a clear aesthetic evolution. No large scars had small scars, if not other visible scars almost imperceptible.
