Cholecystectomy is advised for patients who develop gallstones. Gallstones are made from the precipitation of substances in bile juice. Patients with symptomatic gallstones suffer from shooting pain and can cause serious problems if they become trapped in the bile ducts such as jaundice and pancreatitis.
