Laparoscopic surgery or Keyhole surgery

In this procedure, the surgeon makes several small incisions in your abdomen. Some patients may also be suitable for single incsion laparoscopic surgery (SILS), which is a newer technique to reduce the number of different incisions used.

During this procedure, cholangiography (X-ray of the bile duct) is taken to look bile duct for any abnormalities. And if your surgeon finds stones in the bile duct, they can also be removed.
