Where Is the Gallbladder Located?
The gallbladder is located on the right side of your body, directly under the liver. It's attached to the liver and the pancreas with a series of ducts. The gallbladder generally sits at the midline of the right (larger) lobe of the liver.
Medical professionals can palpate the gallbladder when the patient is lying on the back or side. Without special knowledge, it's hard for the patient to locate the gallbladder even if it's enlarged.
When to See a Doctor for Gallbladder Issues
If you feel that you may be experiencing gallbladder symptoms you may need a laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure. It is imperative that you seek medical advice from an experienced medical physician like Dr. Steven Williams. He is known as the surgeon of choice for Hiatal Hernia / GERD, Gallbladder, Hernia, Varicose Veins and Spleen Surgery in the Boise area.
