A: There are two options available if you would like to avoid surgical removal of your gallstones. There are drugs that will dissolve the gallstones or sound waves which will fragment the stones until they are small enough to pass painlessly. The drugs, ursodeoxycholic acid (Actigall) and chenodiol (Chenix) are bile salts that can help dissolve the stones, but treatment can take months, and stones can recur.
