4th Safe Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Course SLCC 2018

Cholecystectomy or gallbladder removal is a surgery performed in people with gallstones. Laparoscopy allows for a safer, minimally invasive approach to this surgery. A narrow tube with a camera called a laparoscope is inserted through one incision. This allows the surgeon to visualise the gallbladder on a screen. The gallbladder is then removed through another small incision.
