Cholecystectomy (Gallbladder - Gallstone Removal Surgery) Cost and Procedure Information

A cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of the gallbladder, an organ located just under the liver on the upper right quadrant of the abdomen. It is primarily performed to treat gallstones. The two basic types of this procedure are open cholecystectomy and laparoscopic. The laparoscopic procedure is currently used for approximately 80% of cases. The laparoscopic method uses several small incisions to allow insertion of small thin tubes with video cameras (laparoscopes) and surgical instruments attached to perform the surgery.
