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
- Inflamed or Ruptured Gallbladder
- Cholecystectomy — da Vinci, laparoscopic or open
