Gallbladder Disease / Cholecystectomy
Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder. Gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the upper right side of your abdomen. Your gallbladder collects and stores bile, a digestive fluid produced in your liver. A cholecystectomy may be necessary if you experience pain from gallstones that block the flow of bile.
Cholecystectomy is a common surgery, and it carries only a small risk of complications. In most cases, you can go home the same day of your surgery.
Cholecystectomy is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four or five small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder. Doctors call this a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In some cases, one large incision may be used to remove the gallbladder, and this is called an open cholecystectomy.
