Gallbladder surgery the surgical procedure is performed to remove the gallbladder, an organ located in the bottom serving liver and bile reserve. Removal is indicated when the patient has pain or symptoms caused by the formation of calculi (stones) in the gallbladder. Gallbladder operation can be minimally invasive or open. In the first case, the surgeon will make three or four incisions in the abdomen and one of the holes, insert a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube connected to a camera that allows the inside of the cavity) and other instruments for the procedure. Then also gas with a needle inserted to expand the abdomen and cut the bile duct and blood vessels that lead to the gallbladder. Finally, it will remove the organ.

Whipple surgery involves removal of the head of the pancreas, part of the small intestine and some surrounding tissue.

For its part, the distal pancreatectomy involves removing the body and tail of the pancreas. Biliary diversion is done if the cancer is blocking the small intestine and bile builds up in the gallbladder. In this case, the bile duct is cut and attached to the bowel, but can also solve the problem by placing a catheter to drain bile. As for treatment for acute or chronic pancreatitis, intervention, called cholecystectomy, is removed by laparoscopy (small incisions in the abdomen) gallbladder by an accumulation of calculi (stones).
