Not all stomach, intestinal, gallbladder and other symptoms in the internal organs lead to surgery. A large proportion of the commonest stomach problems are due to a functional or other cause that can be treated with modern methods and medication.

Book an appointment with one of Eira Hospital’s expert specialists if you develop symptoms.

At the clinic, any serious diseases can be excluded, relieving you of unnecessary anxiety.
