Biliary Surgery

Gall bladder & Bile duct


The gallbladder is a sac about 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) long located on the undersurface of the right lobe of the liver. Bile in the hepatic duct of the liver flows through the cystic duct into the gallbladder which stores bile. The gallbladder also concentrates bile by absorbing water. When food enters into the duodenum, the concentrated & stored bile is transported through the common bile duct into the intestine.
