A splenectomy is the removal of the spleen, which may be necessary due to trauma or rupture, or in cases where the spleen has enlarged due to disease or illness. A partial splenectomy may also be an option for you. Planned splenectomies are usually performed as a laparoscopic surgery using small incisions under general anesthesia.
