Pancreatic, Biliary & Gallbladder Disease

The region’s foremost doctors specializing in the pancreas and gallbladder.

The pancreas and gallbladder are two organs that work with the rest of the digestive system. The pancreas produces hormones, a digestive juice and enzymes to help the small intestine absorb nutrients. The gallbladder stores the bile produced by the liver until it is released into the small intestine to help digest fats. This process works beautifully, until it doesn’t. Gallstones, pancreatitis and cancers of the pancreas, gallbladder or bile ducts are some of the conditions treated by the pancreatic and biliary disease experts at the Digestive Health Institute.

DHI’s gastroenterologists and surgeons are some of the region’s most experienced in performing procedures and surgeries to treat conditions of the gallbladder and pancreas. Whenever possible, they offer minimally invasive treatments for these organs that do not require open surgery. Many of these procedures are performed endoscopically through the mouth and don’t involve external scars. Surgery may be performed through a few small keyhole incisions or sometimes through just one incision in the belly button.

If you have a pancreas or gallbladder condition, trust the experts who can treat it less invasively. Call the Digestive Health Institute at (813) 615-7557 for an appointment.
