Treating Gallbladder Disease

Ease Your Pain and Get Back to Your Life

If you're like most people, you don’t ever really think about your gallbladder — unless something goes wrong. This small, pear-shaped organ does have a role to play in your body’s functioning, and when it isn’t working right, your symptoms can be uncomfortable, distressing, and painful. Whether you have gallbladder inflammation, gallstones, or another gallbladder problem, the nationally acclaimed team at AdventHealth will help you find lasting relief with advanced gallbladder disease treatments that help relieve your pain and get back to not thinking about your gallbladder.

Diagnosing Gallbladder Disease

You want to move forward with your life, but unpleasant and painful symptoms of gallbladder problems are standing in the way. You don't have to face them alone. You may be experiencing nausea and vomiting, fever and chills, or abdominal pain that spreads to other areas. Whatever your symptoms, the compassionate team at AdventHealth can help you understand what's causing them and figure out a plan to treat them efficiently and effectively.

Because there are many possible gallbladder problems with very similar symptoms, the first step is an accurate gallbladder pain diagnosis. The nationally-acclaimed experts within our network of care will determine exactly what’s causing your condition with tests that may include an endoscopy, ultrasound, and/or biopsy. Once we determine the cause, we can begin to provide the gallbladder disease treatments you need to move forward.

Understanding Gallbladder Diseases

Gallbladder disease isn't one of those "high-profile" diseases, which makes it a bit of a mystery to most people. This is why education is part of our commitment to your care. We're here to provide information and answers to help you understand your gallbladder problems. As one of America’s high-performing hospital networks for digestive health, the compassionate team at AdventHealth is committed to guiding you through every step, from diagnosis to treatment to getting back to the fulfilling lifestyle you deserve.
