Answer

Patients diagnosed with cholecystitis must be educated regarding causes of their disease, complications if left untreated, and medical/surgical options to treat cholecystitis. For patient education information, see the Digestive Disorders Center, as well as Gallstones and Pancreatitis.

For further clinical information, see the Medscape Drugs & Diseases topic Acute Cholecystitis and Biliary Colic.
