An organ that aids digestion with an enzyme named bile is called a gallbladder. When there’s a functional imbalance, hard fragments called Gallstones are formed. Sizes of these can differ and can be anywhere between a rice grain to a golf ball.
Treating Gallstones may require surgery to be removed and according to statistics, around 80% of patients have to go through minimally invasive surgery to get rid of gallstones.
Dr. Dasari is a gallbladder surgeon that consults patients with troubled gallbladders in Henderson at his clinic, Minimally Invasive Surgery. If surgical treatment is determined necessary, patients are treated at an outpatient surgery center near them or Henderson Hospital.
Issues in the gallbladder are indicated by slowly increased pain in the upper right abdomen. Intense pain in the middle of a patient’s abdomen is also a critical symptom. Other symptoms might be pain in the back, shoulder blades, or in the right shoulder. Feeling nauseous can also be a sign of gallbladder issues or Gallstones.
