Gallbladder: It Has a Purpose

The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ that lives under the liver in the right upper abdomen.  It works as a reservoir for bile, a thick liquid that is produced by the liver to help us digest fat.  Dr. Leitman will go over the functions of the gallbladder, signs and symptoms of common issues that affect the gallbladder as well as treatments, and how to maintain a healthy gallbladder.
