Cholecystectomy

A cholecystectomy is a form of surgery designed to help remove your gallbladder. This tiny organ is nestled just below your liver in the upper-right side of your stomach. The primary function of the gallbladder is storing and collecting bile, which is a type of fluid that your liver produces. When your gallbladder isn’t working properly, you can suffer from gallstones and intense stomach and back pain. Stop letting the pain control your life and save money on your gallbladder surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you with I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need a cholecystectomy?

If you are experiencing a significant amount of pain from the gallstones, they may also end up blocking the bile from flowing properly through your system. Many people feel intense pain in their stomach and back after eating anything fried or salty. Because the system can’t properly digest the food, it causes pain and inflammation to ensue.

How is the cholecystectomy procedure performed?

An anesthetic is given to help prepare you for the surgery. Four small incisions are made in your abdomen. The surgeon will insert a video camera into one of the incisions. Special surgical tools are put into the other incisions to remove your gallbladder and see inside of your abdomen. In certain instances, you might have a single large incision instead of the four smaller ones. Sutures are used to close the incisions.

What is recovery like after a cholecystectomy?

Most people are able to go home the same day as their surgery, but some do have to stay overnight for observation. Once you can drink, eat and walk without assistance, you are normally able to go home. Recovery only takes about a week. During that time, you might be a little sore and stiff.

How much does a cholecystectomy cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $6,365, versus having to pay $63,650 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
