Treatment for Gallbladder Disorders
The gallbladder is responsible for storing bile and concentrating it before it moves on to the small intestine. There are a number of gallbladder disorders which affect patients, most of which are treatable without the need to remove the organ. Abdominal pain in the upper right side is a common sign of gallbladder problems. This pain often occurs immediately after eating foods that are high in fat content.
Gallstones can also cause problems when they lodge in a duct, which results in a blockage. The symptoms experienced are usually indicative of the type of medical condition you are suffering from when the gallbladder is affected. Dr. David Yamini provides excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of a range of gallbladder disorders and other GI conditions in California.
Symptoms of a Problematic Gallbladder
Besides pain in the abdomen around the gallbladder, there are a number of other symptoms which are often ignored or mistaken for something else. Many patients experience a loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting without experiencing pain or any other kind of discomfort. It is not until they experience a mild fever, tea-colored urine or light colored stools that they suspect gallbladder problems.
When a duct is blocked, it can result in symptoms expressing as jaundice. This condition requires treatment from an experienced gastroenterologist in order to restore proper function to the organ and deal with any large gallstones that are likely to cause further health concerns. Dr. Yamini, supported by his team, can provide an accurate diagnosis when you visit his offices for consultation.
