Gallbladder problems are extremely common in the USA. Gallbladder surgery is one of the most commonly performed abdominal operations. At Advanced Surgery of Idaho, we perform the vast majority of gallbladder operations laparoscopically (i.e. using very small holes in the abdomen).
The Board Certified Surgeons of Advanced Surgery of Idaho have successfully performed literally thousands of gallbladder surgical procedures. We utilize state of the art equipment and techniques that enable most of our patients to go home the same day as the operation. Patients with special needs or extenuating circumstances may stay overnight in the hospital. For most patients surgical recovery time is seven days.
