A cholecystectomy is most commonly performed to treat gallstones and the complications they cause. A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder ( a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the upper right side of your abdomen. Your gallbladder collects and stores bile) a digestive fluid produced in your liver. A cholecystectomy is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder. Doctors call this a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
