Gall Bladder Surgery > What Gall Bladder treatments are available?

Providing you have significant symptoms related to gallstones, in almost every case keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery to remove the gallbladder is recommended. Exceptions are occasionally made for the elderly in whom the attacks are not frequent or severe or those with major illnesses which could make the operation more dangerous than the gallstones. Unfortunately, there is no adequate treatment for gallstones without surgery. Chemical and ultrasound disintegration are possible interventions however in all but a few cases, gallstones recur within a few months to a few years.
