What are gallstones?

Gallstones are small ‘stones’ that form in the gallbladder. They are quite common. Some people have gallstones and are without symptoms but for others they result in frequent flare-ups of abdominal pain.

What does a gallbladder do?

A gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ located in the upper right area of the stomach. It holds and releases bile (which is created by the liver) which helps to break down and digest fatty foods.

How long does gallbladder removal surgery take?

The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and usually takes no more than 30-60 minutes in theatre.

The keyhole surgical technique normally requires the surgeon to make just 4 make small horizontal incisions in the abdomen through which the laparoscope (the source of light and camera) and instruments required to do the procedure are passed.

How long does it take to recover from gallbladder removal surgery?

As gallbladder removal is a keyhole procedure, recovery time is quick. Most patients are able to get back to their normal activities in around a week. Patients can go home the same day, some may stay 1 night depending on the time of their surgery.
