Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal Abroad: Surgery Price Suggests Going Abroad Is the Right Choice

This press release was orginally distributed by SBWire

Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/07/2016 -- Laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery, also known as cholecystectomy, is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Because the surgery does not have risks as high as other surgeries, many patients choose to go abroad for laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery.

The purpose of the laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery is to remove the gallbladder and gallstones through several small incisions in the abdomen. The surgery is being performed after a thorough x-ray testing and during the surgery, the surgeon inflates patient's abdomen with air or carbon dioxide in order to see clearly.

Although this surgery is minimally invasive and would only last about 2 hours, it requires general anaesthesia. Recovery is relatively short and easy – patients usually have minimal post-operative pain. Because of this, as well as high prices for the surgery if going private in the UK, many British patients choose to go abroad for laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery.

Before choosing the hospital abroad, many patients doing research are searching for gallbladder surgery recovery tips. Although recovery is pretty easy – most people can return to their normal activities in 7 to 10 days, there are certain recommendations a patient must follow, and the most important of all is gallbladder removal recovery diet. Not only it is important to avoid greasy and fried foods at least a week after surgery, but patients should go easy on the fat for the rest of their life – minimizing the amount of fat consumed

"Although there are many advantages to laparoscopic gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy), the procedure may not be appropriate for some patients who have severe complicated gallbladder disease or previous upper abdominal surgery. This is why thorough examination tests are performed as the patient arrives, the day before the surgery" – says Andrius Jonutis, the General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.

At Kardiolita hospital, laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery price starts at 3000 Eur, which lets British patients save up to 60% of what they would pay privately in the UK – visit for more information.
