If you have a gallbladder attack or severe symptoms, your doctor may suggest surgery to remove your gallbladder. It’s an organ you can live without. Gallbladder removal is known as a cholecystectomy.
Gallbladder surgery can be done using open surgery (through one large incision) or minimally invasively (through a few small incisions or one belly button incision) using da Vinci Surgery or traditional laparoscopy.
With Da Vinci Robotic gallbladder surgery your surgeon removes your gallbladder using state-of-the-art precision instruments. As a result of using the Da Vinci Robotic technology there is:
- Lower rate of major complications
- Lower conversion rate to open surgery
- Minimal scars
- High patient satisfaction compared to traditional laparoscopy
- Minimal pain compared to traditional laparoscopy
