As research and clinical trials on gallbladder surgery continue to evaluate the safety and long-term effects of the procedure, doctors also work toward new treatment options for patients. Drug therapies and shockwave therapy may be safer options for some patients with gallstones. Experimental hyperthermia and radiosensitizers may be more effective options for gallbladder cancer.
Ongoing clinical trials at Florida Hospital help doctors develop better, less invasive treatments. Find out more about the studies and research at Florida Hospital.
