Single-Site Gallbladder Surgery: What to Expect

Prepare yourself for your upcoming gallbladder surgery.

If your doctor has recommended a gallbladder surgery, you would be wise to consider a single-site procedure with the da Vinci Surgical System. While the thought of a "robotic surgery" may seem a little weird at first, it is actually an extremely safe procedure that provides many benefits for the patient. Here's what you can expect:

No visible scarring – Your surgeon will create one cut during the procedure, and it will be in your belly button. Unlike traditional gallbladder surgeries, you will not have a large scar across the abdomen. Even laparoscopy procedure leaves three small marks. The single-site da Vinci surgery won't leave a trace behind.

Minimal risk of post-op complications – Infections are the top complications experienced by surgical patients, but without the typical incision, the risk for infection is extremely low in da Vinci surgeries.

Minimal need for post-op care – Dressing, washing, and redressing the incision: these actions used to be unavoidable for post-op patients. Your incision won't be nearly as high-maintenance.

An easy recovery – Surgery always involves a long, painful recovery, right? Not anymore. This single-site gallbladder surgery dramatically reduces discomfort following the procedure, and allows patients to get back on their feet and back to their lives quicker.
