da Vinci® Single-Site™ Gallbladder Surgery

Service:

Using Single-Site™ instruments on a da Vinci® Si™ System, surgeons are able to perform a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) with only one incision, which is approximately one inch. Unlike traditional robotic surgeries requiring three to five small incisions, this new technology allows for a single incision in the belly button where instruments are placed and the diseased gallbladder is removed. A cholecystectomy also can be performed as a multi-port procedure.
