Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredWhen infections from gallstones occur, or in more extreme cases when the gallbladder bursts, surgery is necessary. The most common removal method is laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, a safe procedure that utilizes a long, thin instrument with a video lens at the tip. The laparoscope gives the surgeon a magnified view of the internal organs. Recovery time is minimal and may require only a short hospital stay.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
