Data was collected on a forma designed to include demographic information, history, examination findings, risk factors, operative technique, complications and their management as well as follow up. Results: In this study 54 patients underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the study period, 51 (94.44%) were females and 3 (5.56%) were males. The mean age was 38 years (age group was between 16-60 years). Intra peritoneal Spillage of bile from gall bladder occurred in 16 patients (29.63%). Out of the 54 patients, 3 (5.56%) patients developed surgical site infection which was managed with regular local wound toilet and antibiotics. Drain insertion was significantly associated with development of wound infection. Conclusion: LC is an effective and safe procedure that was associated with a low incidence of port site infection.
