Gallbladder

Gallbladder disease is a common cause of digestive problems. Beaufort Memorial’s team of board-certified surgeons has extensive experience in diagnosing gallbladder pain and problems and uses the latest technology in treating them. For example, one treatment — da Vinci single-site gall bladder surgery — removes the gallbladder from a single, one-inch incision that’s hidden in the belly button.


Common Gallbladder Problems and Conditions

Symptoms vary by condition, but often include sharp pain in the right abdomen especially after eating a fatty meal, heartburn, indigestion, gas, excessive diarrhea, nausea or abdominal tenderness. Common problems can include:

  • Biliary Colic
  • Chronic Gallbladder Disease
  • Gallstones
  • Inflamed or Ruptured Gallbladder
