Gallbladder Removal – Epidemiology



So it’s an interesting question, and I have to say that every ethnic group is not exempt from getting gallstones. Everybody gets gallstones. So it’s really… The epidemiology is such that 20% of general population in the United States will have it. And overall it is probably one of the most frequent operations in the country. Probably about 500,000 to 750,000 gallbladder removals are done annually in the United States.
