Summary
Cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of the gallbladder, performed in the event of cholelithiasis, or when the gallbladder has formed stones. These stones can block the duct leading from the gallbladder to the common bile duct, which results in cholecystitis, an often painful infection. This program explains when gallbladder removal would be recommended. The video features 3-D animations and straightforward explanations to help patients fully understand the procedure, risks and complications, recovery, and when to call the doctor.
