Gall Bladder Removal (Cholecystectomy)

The gallbladder is an organ which is connected to the common bile duct. Bile, produced in the liver flows from the common bile duct to be stored in the gallbladder. Stones or sludge may form in the gallbladder due to stasis (an inability of the gallbladder to work properly). If this occurs, and the stones are causing symptoms, the gallbladder may need to be removed. This is most commonly done laparoscopically. In very rare cases it may need to be done in an open fashion.
