Yes.: It is safe to say that there are millions of people in the US with gallstones. Thankfully, only about 10-20% develop symptoms; this is best treated by surgery once symptoms begin. As many as 500, 000-750, 000 of these operations are performed in the US yearly.
Dr. Keith Monson
General Surgery 23 years experience
Yes: Gallbladder disease is extremely common in the us affecting more than 20 million people.
