In recent years, personalized medicine has taken an important role in the development of patient care, especially in oncology. It requires the use of advanced basic sciences (molecular biology, genetics). On the other hand, evidence based medicine remains a modern approach to health care. However, there are limits of use. This study puts to face the two approaches. Among the three pillars of the EBM, patient values can be part of the general principle of PM. A relevant clinical example is the management of gallbladder stones. We worked on two groups of patients: the first is managed according to the EBM approach while the second benefits from management based on the combination of EBM and PM. We followed the PICO (Patient Intervention Comparison Outcome) criteria. When reading the results, we found more significant PICO criteria. In conclusion, personalized medicine brings significant value to the EBM which was the main paradigm of patient care.
