Gall bladder surgery

Gallbladder surgery are commonly undertaken in private hospitals, normally by a general surgeon who specialises in the gall bladder. The gall bladder or cholecyst is a pear-shaped organ that stores about 50 ml of bile, which is released when food containing fat enters the digestive tract. The bile, produced in the liver, emulsifies fats and neutralises acids in partly digested food.

Private gall bladder removal operations (also known as cholecystectomy) are undertaken, as are operations to remove gall stones which are causing pain
