    Gallbladder Procedures

    The gallbladder is a small organ located near your liver and stomach. Your gallbladder stores bile (a substance produced by the liver to help you digest fat), and releases it into your small intestine as you eat.

    The gallbladder is not considered an essential organ, and an otherwise healthy person can have a gallbladder removed with minimal side effects. Cholecystectomy is the term for the surgical removal of the gallbladder. This is often done for patients who have gallstones causing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and/or abdominal pain.
