What is gallbladder surgery?
A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder, a pear-shaped organ located just below the liver on the upper right side of the abdomen. A cholecystectomy is most often done by inserting a small video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder. Doctors call it laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
