From East Texas Medical Center:
TYLER, TX - ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on gallbladder disease with surgeon Dr. David Young of East Texas Vascular Associates on Tuesday, July 8, at noon in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler.
"The disease often presents differently from person to person with symptoms ranging from nausea to back pain and upper abdominal pain to yellowing of the skin," said Dr. Young. "Around 20 percent of the population has gallstones and 5 to 10 percent of those will need surgery."
Dr. Young will discuss the disease and the latest advancements in treatment, including da Vinci single-site surgery.
