There are several forms of gallbladder surgery, including procedures to remove gallstones while leaving the gallbladder intact and procedures to completely remove the entire organ. Because the gallbladder can be removed without causing any significant issues, a complete surgical removal (cholecystectomy) is usually the preferred form of treatment when surgery is recommended. However, there are a number of factors that can influence a patient’s options when it comes to gallbladder disease treatment. That’s why each patient’s treatment plan is fully individualized by the friendly team at Florida Medical Clinic.
