Saudi king, 84, undergoes surgery to remove gallbladder

Saudi king, 84, undergoes surgery to remove gallbladderSaudi Arabia's King Salman underwent a successful surgery that removed his gallbladder, the kingdom said Thursday, just days after being admitted to hospital over an inflammation of the organ. Surgeons at Riyadh's King Faisal Specialist Hospital operated on the king, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported, describing the procedure as a laparoscopic surgery — a low-risk procedure that usually involves only small incisions and a tiny camera to aid the surgeons' work. The gallbladder, a small, pouch-like organ near the liver that stores bile, can easily be removed and is not critical for life.
