Gallbladder Surgery

When Gallbladder Problems Strike

Would you know if you had a problem with your gallbladder? Unless you have either had a problem before, likely a gallstone, or have an extensive knowledge of the gallbladder, you may not know what is causing your pain and discomfort. For many people the gallbladder is simply out of sight and out of mind. However, gallbladder disease is very common with as many as 500,000 people undergoing surgery to have their gallbladder removed every year.

Who is at risk?
