Pancreatic, Gallbladder & Liver Disorders

Get comprehensive care for your pancreas, gallbladder, and liver at Hartford Hospital. You’ll work with gastroenterologists and surgical experts who use advanced tools to help diagnose and treat conditions so you regain a healthy biliary tract and digestion.


Common Symptoms

You may need an evaluation and treatment for pancreatic, gallbladder, or liver disorders if you’re experiencing:

  • Abdominal pain or swelling
  • Back or side pain
  • Bloating or indigestion
  • Clay-colored or off-colored stools
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever and chills
  • Jaundice, or yellowing of the skin or eyes
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting or trouble keeping down food

When to See a Specialist

Don’t wait to see a doctor. Symptoms of biliary tract conditions can get worse or dangerous without diagnosis and treatment. Talk to your primary care doctor about your symptoms. If your doctor recommends you see a specialist request a referral to Hartford Hospital.


Conditions We Treat

Get help from gastroenterologists at Hartford Hospital for treatment of:

  • Cancer – Tumors or harmful growths found in the pancreas, gallbladder, and liver
  • Gallstones – Small stones made of nutrients that get stuck in your gallbladder
  • Liver or pancreatic cysts – Sacs of fluid that form on the pancreas, liver, or other part of your digestive tract
  • Pancreatitis – Inflammation of the pancreas that can be caused by gallstones or other enzymes in your body
  • Strictures – Narrowing of the bile or pancreatic duct caused by scar tissue or tumors that obstruct the flow of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract

Diagnosis & Treatment

Your gastroenterologist will evaluate your symptoms and recommend a diagnostic test to determine your condition. If diagnosed with a biliary tract disorder, you’ll receive a custom treatment plan.
