Gallbladder Conditions

The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped organ found underneath the liver. Its main purpose is to store bile with a capacity from 50 to 100mls and it also concentrates the bile to make it effective for digestion of fats. Bile flows from the liver into the gallbladder through tiny tubes known as bile ducts. The gallbladder releases bile into the small bowel when food is consumed. If the gallbladder becomes diseased and starts giving pain, this can be removed without affecting the digestive system. If not removed, this can continue to give symptoms and may result in complication like infection and jaundice, rarely cancer.

There are numerous stomach conditions of which Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD) and Peptic ulcer disease (an umbrella term for Peptic Ulcers and Duodenal ulcers) are the most common. There is some overlap between these conditions and they share the same fundamental treatments.

Hernias

Hernias are defined as an abnormal protrusion of either tissue or organ e.g. bowel, from the normal area they are located in. There is a wide array of different types of hernias that patients may develop, with the most common hernia occurring in the groin. There are a number of risk factors that can increase the chance of hernias developing, these includes obesity, pregnancy, smoking, chronic lung conditions (COPD) and previous surgery.
