We routinely care for patients with abdominal pain. Right Lower Quadrant (RLQ) abdominal pain is perhaps one of the most common patient complaints leading to a surgical consultation.

The possibility of appendicitis must always be considered.

Appendicitis can usually be treated by laparoscopic appendectomy, but occasionally requires use of the open technique.
