If you have severe gallbladder symptoms, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove your gallbladder – an organ you can live without.
Gallbladder removal, also known as a cholecystectomy, can be performed using open surgery through a large incision, or with minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy). With traditional laparoscopy, surgeons operate through a few small incisions. With da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery, your surgeon can operate through one tiny incision in the belly button.
