However, like other surgeries, when surgeons and medical staff observe a high standard of patient care, mistakes can largely be avoided.

Mistakes are Avoidable
While removal of the gall bladder — the procedure is technically known as a cholecystectomy — has risks like any other surgical procedure, an experienced doctor should be more than capable of removing the organ safely. A less experienced doctor may be more likely to make mistakes such as cutting or clamping the wrong duct or piercing other organs.
When these medical errors happen, the situation can cause great harm. When the situation is not handled properly, patients can suffer great harm. Mistakes must be diagnosed quickly, as inflammation and infection make repair of the damage much more difficult.
