da Vinci gallbladder surgery

If you have severe gallbladder symptoms, your doctor may recommend a surgery to remove your gallbladder, called cholecystectomy. Unless there are other complications, gallblader removal surgery is performed in a minimally invasive way. Two minimally-invasive options include the use of the da Vinci robotic surgical system to perform the surgery with a single incision, or several very small incisions.

robotic single-site cholecystectomy

With this revolutionary procedure, your surgeon can make only one small incision in your navel to remove your gallbladder. The da Vinci system features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system coupled with flexible instruments. As a result, your doctor can operate with enhanced vision and precision.

This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis with only a few days of recovery time. After recovery, the scar will be hidden in the navel, making it invisible.

robotic cholecystectomy

Using the da Vinci surgical system, your surgeon makes just a few small incisions - similar to traditional laparoscopy. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
