I am happy to see this note from Maritime Medical and Laboratory Clinic which does not strictly require all patients with gallbladder polyps to be operated on (depending on a surgeon’s evaluation).
Asymptomatic gallbladder polyps seen on ultrasound are not an indication for surgery. Seafarers with such a condition are physically fit to render seafarer’s duties.
The other medical clinic which has the same policy is: Baliwag Navigation, Inc.

Thank you, Maritime Medical and Laboratory Clinic and Baliwag Navigation, Inc.
