ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on gallbladder disease with surgeon Dr. David Young of East Texas Vascular Associates on Tuesday, July 8, at noon in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler.
“The disease often presents differently from person to person with symptoms ranging from nausea to back pain and upper abdominal pain to yellowing of the skin,” said Dr. Young. “Around 20 percent of the population has gallstones and 5 to 10 percent of those will need surgery.”
Dr. Young will discuss the disease and the latest advancements in treatment, including da Vinci single-site surgery.
Lunch will be served. Free parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, located at 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler. The gate and building will open at 11:15 a.m. Please pre-register by calling 866-333-ETMC and pressing 6.
