The gall bladder is a small organ situated in the upper part of the abdomen which helps the body to digest food by means of a liquid called bile. Gall stones, hard small deposits, can form, causing obstruction.
The preferred method to remove the gall bladder is the laparoscopic approach. Small incisions are done instead of a longer one which is a characteristic of an open surgery. The recovery period is much shorter, so much so that most of the time, one may go home on the same day of surgery. The pain in the short and long term is also less and one can resume daily activities much faster.
