Gallbladder Surgery

Minimally invasive gallbladder surgery, known as a cholecystectomy, is one of the most common surgical procedures performed to treat gallstones and gallbladder disease. Minimally invasive gallbladder procedures have significant advantages over traditional open surgery including:

  • They employ only four tiny abdominal incisions, and at times, just one small incision at the belly button
  • Minimal postoperative discomfort
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities

Minimally invasive gallbladder operations have become the standard of care given their numerous benefits and elevated success rates. Many illnesses of the gallbladder can be effectively treated with minimally invasive techniques including:

  • Gallstones
  • Biliary tract disease
  • Gallbladder inflammation
  • Pancreas inflammation (pancreatitis) or jaundice
  • Cholangitis

Surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery in a variety of ways including robotic and laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery employs advanced technology that gives the surgeon the same internal view but without the need for large incisions.

Through the use of a tiny video camera (called a laparoscope) which lights up the internal tissue and sends video images onto a monitor, the surgeon can observe, guide, and successfully perform an array of surgical procedures.

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Gallbladder Surgery

Minimally invasive gallbladder surgery involves smaller incisions and employs that latest state-of-the-art technology to achieve (often superior) outcomes to what was only possible in the past through more traditional, open methods.

The benefits of minimally invasive gallbladder surgery include:

  • Less pain after surgery
  • Smaller scars and enhanced cosmetic results
  • Lower infection rates
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery time

Numerous studies have shown that surgeons who specialize in particular procedures attain the best results. Our surgical team specializes in minimally invasive robotic and laparoscopic treatment for many abdominal conditions and diseases.

Not everyone is a candidate for minimally invasive surgery. Specific factors need to be taken into account including:

  • The reason for the operation
  • Prior abdominal surgery
  • Extreme obesity
  • Other serious medical illnesses such as severe heart, vascular, or lung disease

Consultation with one’s gallbladder surgeon is essential to determine the best course of medical action to yield optimal results.
