GERD Treatment

Many gallbladder problems are caused by the dysfunction of the gallbladder, which may or may not include gallbladder stones. Gallstones form when substances in the bile crystallize and become solid. In some cases, the gallstones do not cause any symptoms.

Hernia Repair

Saint Alphonsus in Boise, Idaho

The abdominal wall is made up of layers of muscle, fat, and other tissues. Together, they strengthen the abdominal wall. Hernia surgery repairs a weakness in the muscle and connective tissue. This prevents the intestines or other tissue from bulging out again.
