Gallstones are painful, hard deposits in the gallbladder. The treatment is surgical removal of the gallbladder. Vanderbilt’s skilled surgeons can evaluate you and schedule your surgery quickly, so you can put painful gallbladder attacks behind you.
Our "Fast Track Clinic" offers special coordination of care for people who need gallbladder surgery, but who are otherwise healthy. We evaluate you and schedule you for surgery quickly, often within one week.
Our fellowship-trained surgeons have extensive training and experience performing a wide range of surgeries, including minimally invasive techniques.
Our doctors work closely with nurse practitioners and skilled nurses to ensure that you receive the highest quality of care before, during and after your surgery.
