Open Cholecystectomy

Open Cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of the gallbladder through about a 5 inch incision across the upper abdomen. The procedure is done under general anesthesia and you normally have to stay in the hospital a couple days. The gallbladder is removed due to chronic inflammation and/or gallstones. Recovery period can last anywhere from four to eight weeks.
