Gallbladder disease?

presented by Dr. David Young

Noon, Tuesday, July 8 

ETMC Pavilion

Gallbladder disease can be confusing. 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.

The disease also is quite prevalent. Around 20 percent of the general population has gallstones, and about 5 to 10 percent of those will need surgery.

Join Dr. David Young, general surgeon with East Texas Vascular Associates, as he discusses gallbladder disease and the latest advancements in treatment, including da Vinci single-site surgery.

Lunch will be served. Free parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, located at 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler. The gate and building will open at 11:15 a.m. and the presentation will begin at noon. Please pre-register by calling 866-333-ETMC and press 6.
