Robotic Gallbladder removal

Minimally invasive general surgery

Gallbladder Removal using the Latest Robotic Technology

Gallbladder surgery is extremely common in the United States. When bile builds up in the gallbladder it can lead to the formation of stones. People who are overweight or obese are more likely to develop gallstones. Some individuals may develop stones that do not cause many symptoms or problems. However, those that do have issues with gallstones and inflammation may require surgery to remove the stones and gallbladder, which is called a cholecystectomy.

What are symptoms of gallstones?

Pain in the pit of your stomach that can spread to your upper back Pain that gets worse when you eat food Fever and chills Yellowing of the skin and eyes

How is a cholecystectomy done?

After your gallbladder is removed, you will no longer have gallstones. Your body will work fine without a gallbladder. The change is that bile instead will just flow straight from the liver to the intestines.
