If you have a gall bladder stone...

If you have a gall bladder stone do you always have to have gall bladder removal?

Not necessarily. The decision to treat patients with gallbladder stones is always reached with the individual after considering factors including their symptoms, general level of fitness and any potentially serious complications of the gallstones, e.g. infection, stones causing blockage of bile ducts and pancreatitis.

However, if the decision is made to proceed with treatment for gallbladder stones, the standard approach is surgical removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy), not just removal of the gallstones as gallstones will commonly recur if the gallbladder remains.
