The gallbladder is a small muscular sac that is attached to the underside of the liver and stores bile. Bile helps aid your digestion.
Gallbladder issues can cause indigestion, right sided abdominal pain, back pain, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, diarrhea, and rarely, pancreatitis.
Surgery to remove the gallbladder can be for gallstones or gallbladder dysfunction, called biliary dyskinesia. The surgery to remove the gallbladder is normally performed laparoscopically with 4 small incisions. It is an outpatient surgery and often is completed at the surgery center.
