Cholelithiasis Clinic

Introduction of department

Cholelithiasis is a disease that require surgery in elderly patients and is very common. Recently, cholelithiasis has been on the rise. As life expectancy increased, the period of lifetime living with cholelithiasis also prolonged, and the likelihood of complications due to cholelithiasis (pain, gallbladder cancer, chronic cholecystitis, etc.) increased. Considering these complications, surgery is recommended if there are any symptoms or if the size of the stones is large. To help appropriate and rapid treatment of benign gallbladder diseases such as cholelithiasis and benign tumors, which are increasing in incidence and diagnosis, Kyungpook National University Chilgok Hospital is operating a cholelithiasis clinic.

Cholelithiasis clinics are very useful for busy office workers because they can perform necessary tests such as ultrasound, abdominal CT scans, and endoscopy on the day of their visit, as well as perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy on the day of admission, surgery, and discharge on the same day. In addition, benign gallbladder diseases are often accompanied by benign liver, biliary tract, and pancreas and malignant neoplastic diseases. In this regard, the liver cancer center and endoscopy center of Kyungpook National University Chilgok Hospital are cooperating to provide the best treatment.
