Extended cholecystectomy

Extended Cholecystectomy

Extended cholecystectomy/ Radical cholecystectomy is used for patients with tumors in the gallbladder. This involves removing the gallbladder, part of the liver, and surrounding lymph glands. A more extensive operation may be needed to remove a larger portion of the liver, the bile duct or additional lymph nodes in some advanced cases.

The procedure is done under general anaesthesia. This is a safe procedure, and complications are uncommon. Post-procedure, the patient needs a hospital stay for 3 to 5 days.
