Introduction
Magandang HealthServ na araw! At HealthServ Los Baños Medical Center, we are committed to continually enhancing patient care and safety. As part of this commitment, we are delighted to introduce our new comprehensive Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy package. This all-inclusive package is designed to provide our patients with the highest standard of care, ensuring a safe and cost-effective treatment journey. Starting June 17, 2024, this package will be available for Php 115,000.00, net of PhilHealth coverage, and includes room and board, the surgical procedure, hospitalization expenses, and professional fees.

 

 

Understanding Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for the removal of the gallbladder. This procedure is performed using small incisions and a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera, to guide the surgeon. The gallbladder is a small organ that stores bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver. When gallstones or other issues cause severe pain, infections, or other complications, removing the gallbladder may be necessary to restore the patient’s health and quality of life.

 

Importance of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Gallbladder problems are relatively common. In the Philippines, gallstone disease is a significant health issue. According to the Department of Health (DOH), many Filipinos suffer from gallstones and related complications. If left untreated, gallstones can lead to severe conditions such as cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), pancreatitis, or even gallbladder cancer. These conditions can be life-threatening if not addressed promptly.

 

Ideal Candidates for the Procedure
The ideal candidates for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy are individuals experiencing symptoms of gallbladder disease, such as:

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)

 

Additionally, those who have been diagnosed with gallstones or gallbladder inflammation through imaging tests like ultrasounds are prime candidates for this surgery. It is essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if this procedure is the best option based on individual health conditions.

 

Benefits of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy offers several advantages over traditional open surgery, including:

  • Minimal Postoperative Discomfort: The procedure involves smaller incisions, resulting in less pain and discomfort after surgery.
  • Shorter Hospitalization: Patients typically experience a shorter hospital stay, allowing them to return to their daily activities more quickly.
  • Faster Recovery: The minimally invasive nature of the surgery promotes faster healing and recovery.
  • Reduced Scarring: Smaller incisions mean less visible scarring.
