Gall bladder removal surgery

Without the gall bladder a human being can well survive without any side effects. the main function of the gall bladder is to store the bile that is secreted by the liver and use it for digestion.

In some cases when the bile becomes the stone in the gall bladder it blocks the bile and causes pain in the gall bladder. If left unattended it may lead to some serious problems. Hence a gall bladder removal surgery is performed to avoid these consequences.
