Gallbladder removal, medically known as cholecystectomy, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a small organ located beneath the liver, and its primary function is to store and release bile, which aids in digestion. Gallbladder removal is typically done when gallstones, inflammation, or other gallbladder issues cause discomfort, pain, or complications.
