General Surgeon 's  Response
You have not mentioned his age.Size of the stone,number of sones in the gall bladder,other medical condition like diabetes,high cholesterol level are all factors to be considered when we plan the treatment.

in general ,patients with multiple stones,single large stone , diabetes and those who had complications due to stone are candidates for removal of gall bladder.medical treatment can be done in selected patients but not for large stones.Removal of the gall bladder is done without making large opening in abdomen.The procedure of choice is Laparoscopic cholecystectomy which has become the gold standard and it is a common procedure
