In brief: Surgery versus diet

If you have gallstones that are causing symptoms of abdominal pain and nausea or vomiting then the most effective treatment is to have the gallbladder removed surgically .
If you don't have symptoms surgery is not indicated and you should try to avoid fatty food in your diet.

In brief: Cholecystectomy

The gallbladder is a gallstone "factory": if we just get rid of the stones and leave the gallbladder, new stones will form. Thankfully, most people have no change in their digestive function w/o the gallbladder. Btw-if you have stones found incidentally but have no symptoms, we do not recommend treatment.
