If you have gallstones, but they don’t cause you pain, our doctor may advise you to just let them be. On the other hand, treatment is usually advised for gallstones that cause pain. Evidence indicates that if you have had one gallbladder attack, you have about a 70 percent chance of having another one. In cases where a gallbladder attack results in an inflamed or irritated gallbladder, your physician may suggest that you have surgery to remove your gallbladder right away. Without removing an inflamed gallbladder, there is a chance that the gallbladder may become infected and even burst.
If you want to learn more about gallstones treatments or other procedures our friendly staff will be happy to answer any of your questions and help you schedule a one-on-one consultation with a doctor.
