About Gallbladder Disease

miVIP is Here to Improve Quality of Life

Right under your liver is your gallbladder, which is in charge of storing and collecting bile to help with digestion. If you ever develop gallstones, your bile flow might be compromised by small stones.

Cholecystitis is a type of gallbladder disease and can cause major complications if it is not treated as soon as possible. In order to treat their condition, a majority of patients opt to have their gallbladder removed with a procedure known as a cholecystectomy. miVIP’s leading surgeons and support staff are here to take care of you and your gallbladder removal surgery using the most cutting edge surgical equipment and medical techniques. If you are looking to get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible after your procedure, then turn to the professionals at miVIP.  

A Fairly Common Condition

According to recent medical statistics:

·       Gallstones affect anywhere between 10 and 20 percent of the US population

·       Nearly 20 percent of men have experienced complications with their gallstones by the time they turn 75

·       A majority of individuals do not know they have gallstones since the condition is not always uncomfortable or painful

Possible Causes of Gallbladder Disease

An inflamed gallbladder can be caused by:

·       Gallstones that block the cystic duct and cause a bile buildup in the gallbladder

·       Tumors that keep bile from flowing out of the gallbladder

·       Scarring and kinks in bile ducts, which leads to blockage

You Might Have a Gallbladder Disease If

Warning signs that you might be have this condition include:

·       Chills

·       Vomiting

·       Fever

·       Nausea

·       Abdominal bloating

·       Tender abdomen

·       Pain that shifts from the abdomen to your shoulder or right back

·       Constant and severe pain in your upper right abdomen

Viable Treatment Options

If you don’t take care of your inflamed gallbladder, you might find yourself in the hospital for several days where you could have to fast in order to relieve your gallbladder of pressure. While there, you might also be given antibiotics and medication. 

Alternatively, you can have a laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure where your gallbladder is removed. During the minimally invasive surgery, a small camera is inserted through a small incision in your abdomen. If your case is extreme, your doctor might recommend an open cholecystectomy.

If you allow a miVIP surgeon to take care of your gallbladder removal surgery, chances are strong that you will be completely relieved of your pain and discomfort.
