Gallbladder Surgery Cholecystectomy

A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder.  The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ in your abdomen that collects and stores bile.

Small, hard deposits called gallstones can form in the gallbladder or bile duct.  These gallstones in your gallbladder can cause mild discomfort to severe pain.  

You might experience some relief from gallstones by changing your diet.  Gallstones rarely go away on there own and typically require surgery to remove.  You might also require surgery if you have an inflamed gallbladder, large gallbladder polyps, or pancreatitis due to gallstones.
