Liver and Biliary System Disorders

General surgery covers some disorders of the liver and biliary system. The most common of these is pain caused by gallstones. These are formed if the gallbladder is not working properly and the standard treatment is to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). This procedure is usually performed using a laparoscopic (keyhole) approach under general anaesthetic and a one night stay in hospital. There are no long term effects after the removal of the gallbladder.
