Gallbladder removal in Mexico

Our gallbladder is a small, tear-drop shaped organ located under your liver (see Figure 1). Its main function is to store bile. Bile is a substance that is made in the liver and helps your body digest fats. Your gallbladder releases bile when food, especially fatty food, enters the digestive tract.


A cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) is done when the gallbladder becomes infected or when gallstones are present, causing symptoms. More than 500,000 Americans undergo gallbladder surgery each year. Once the organ is removed, the main bile duct takes over the function of the gallbladder by carrying more bile from the liver during digestion.

Below is a typical itinerary for someone getting the Cholecystectomy with our surgeons:

  • Day 1: Arrival to destination of surgery – pre-op consultations and pre-op tests – spend night in hotel
  • Day 2: Surgery – spend night in hospital
  • Day 3: Post-op tests – spend night in hotel
  • Day 4: Follow-up consultation – spend night in hotel
  • Day 5: Rest and recover – spend night in hotel
  • Day 6: Follow-up consultation – return home

  • Pain management — You may receive pain medication to help keep you comfortable. Before leaving the hospital you will be given instructions with everything you will need in your recovery
  • Resuming activity — Continue walking as you recover. You may resume normal activity when your discomfort has subsided. Save strenuous activity and heavy lifting until pain at the incision site(s) has resolved. You may return to work when comfortable, usually five to seven days after surgery
  • Driving — You may drive when you no longer require pain medication, usually three to seven days after surgery. Do not drive while taking pain medication
  • Diet — There are no restrictions other than diets previously recommended for certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure. Emphasize fresh fruits, vegetables, bran and liquids to help prevent any constipation that can result from taking pain medication
  • Wound healing — Your incisions will be closed with sterile tape strips (Steri-Strips) that act like stitches. You may shower or bathe with the tape strips in place. Remove the strips when they start to curl and come off, usually 10 to 14 days after surgery. Any minor pain at the incision sites should decrease over time. View the postoperative care instructions
