Single-Site Gallbladder Surgery
If you're facing gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy), there is a robot-assisted surgery that offers a quicker recovery with virtually no scar. The innovative procedure removes a patient's gallbladder through one tiny incision at the belly button.
The da Vinci® Single-Site ™ robotic surgery system makes this minimally invasive procedure possible. A traditional laparoscopic procedure for gallbladder removal requires four small incision and typical revcovery is one week. This surgery results in one small incision that is usually less than an inch.
