Robotic-Assisted Single-Site Gallbladder Surgery


Orange Coast Memorial Proud Moments Video: Single-Site Gallbladder Removal (Cholecystectomy)

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