Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

February 14, 2018

SILS Surgery Singapore: A normal cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure used to remove the gallbladder via a 5 to 8-inch (12-20 centimetres) long incision made in the abdomen. It is a pretty invasive surgical option which can be quite debilitating post-op. 

 

A laparoscopic cholecystectomy on the other hand is a minimally invasive procedure which requires 4 small incisions, each an inch or less in length, to be made around the abdomen as opposed to a single large incision as per the aforementioned cholecystectomy. 

 

The most recent and least invasive technique is the Single Incision Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. In this technique pain is least as surgery is preformed through a single, small key hole-sized cut and there are no obvious scars, as the incision is made within the belly button. Benefits include:

With a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, patients are guaranteed a shorter post-op recovery period and less pain, furthermore they are more likely to go back to their daily routine much sooner than expected. 

 

With a Single Incision Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy, the benefits are as follows

  • Better cosmesis with no externally visible scar

  • Earlier return to activities of daily living

  • Earlier return to work

  • 1 incision instead of 4 hence, less pain

  • 1 incision instead of 4 hence less risk of related complications

  •
