What is a Gallbladder Surgeon?

Gallbladder surgeon are the ones responsible for performing gallbladder removal or also known as a cholecystectomy. There are two types of procedure that a surgeon may perform during a  cholecystectomy:

What Does a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Surgeon Do?

In cholecystectomy surgery, the goal is to remove your gallbladder – a pear-shaped organ that can be found below the liver located on the upper right of your abdomen. Surgeons will use a laparoscopic technique to safely remove this organ through the use of small cameras and tiny surgical instruments passed through a catheter. These catheters are inserted through for small incisions on your abdomen.

Carbon (IV) oxide is later then introduced to inflate your abdomen in order for surgeons to have a clearer view of the gallbladder.

Other surgeons may also use robot-assisted cholecystectomy to achieve a cutting edge performance on the removal of the organ.

How do Colorectal Surgeons Perform Each Procedure?

If surgery is deemed needed, your robotic surgeon in Ramsey NJ will schedule a procedure as soon as possible. The type of surgery depends on the results of the examination conducted by your physician. After the screening, your physician might present and discuss these options for surgery;

Open Surgery Procedure

For starters, you will be injected with intravenous tubes that allow the anesthesiologist to administer general anesthesia. When you are asleep, the colorectal surgeon will proceed to make three to seven-inch incisions on the abdomen. Afterward, the colorectal surgeon will dissect the affected tissues and remove them.

Laparoscopic Surgery Procedure

In this minimally invasive procedure, the colorectal surgeon begins by cleaning the abdominal region with antiseptic soap. After that, the colorectal surgeon proceeds to make three to four small incisions on your abdomen. A thin tube, known as a laparoscope is then inserted to the internal organs to the affected region to capture a live feed on the affected area.

Carbon (IV) oxide gas is then pumped to expand the abdominal cavity, thus allowing the colorectal surgeon to have a better view during the procedure.

Once this is done, the colorectal surgeon will close the main blood vessels supplying blood to the colon. From here, the practitioner will proceed with removing the affected colon. In some cases, the colorectal surgeon may have to use an artificial passageway which is connected to a colostomy bag.

Your surgeon will advise you to stay a whole day at the hospital for the recuperation process. After that you will be advised to have someone to drive you home, to avoid any strain on the wounds. generally, you have a full recovery after four to six weeks after the procedure.
