The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped organ situated directly under the liver in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen.
It's main function is to collect and concentrate the bile that the body uses to digest fats. Problems with the gall bladder and biliary system are very common and consist of -
- Inflammation of the gall bladder and bile ducts
- Muscular spasms and/or poor contraction of the gall bladder wall
- Stones forming in the gall bladder and/or bile ducts
- Obstruction to the free flow of bile
