Gallbladder removal surgery in Mumbai

Surgical removal of the gallbladder is regarded as an effective type of therapy for gallstones. The gallbladder is a tiny digestive organ that sits just behind the liver. The gallbladder serves as a storage facility for bile. When you eat, your gallbladder releases some bile into the small intestines, which helps in breaking down fats.

Gallbladder removal is called a cholecystectomy. You can have your gallbladder removed for several reasons like

  • Cholecystitis (Infection)
  • Gallstones
  • Gallbladder polyps

When one goes through gallbladder surgery there are a lot of things that one needs to change especially changes in their diet and food habits. As the gallbladder is the digestive organ it creates some difficulties while breaking down some kind of food items and thus need a change in dietary habits.
