Being told that you need gallbladder surgery can seem overwhelming. One of the first questions that many people ask is, “What exactly is a gallbladder?” Then, they ask about the surgical procedure, what it involves, what type of recovery time is needed, and if there are risks. Robotic single site gallbladder surgery ensures both safety and efficiency when it comes to removing your gallstones.
In times past, traditional gallbladder surgery was a very complicated affair. It involved making large incisions underneath the ribs. This led to a lot of downtime, increased risk, blood loss, scarring, and potential infections.
Now, thanks to minimally invasive robotic single site gallbladder surgery, all of this can be performed with less downtime and discomfort. Using a robot allows our doctor to be extremely precise. This means that they can work with very small areas. As a result, the entire surgical procedure takes less time, and recovery is fast.
One of the interesting facets of robotic single site gallbladder surgery is that it filters out any shaking or tremors in the surgeon’s hands. So when our surgeon moves his hand, the robot responds in a very consistent and solid way.
Single site gallbladder removal makes gallbladder surgery a lot easier for the patient. The recovery time is cut down to a fraction of what it used to be. They experience less discomfort after the procedure. Blood loss is kept to a minimum during the procedure, which minimizes complications.
Between three weeks and one month after surgery, it is virtually impossible to tell that a surgical procedure was performed. This alone makes this type of surgery attractive to younger patients who like to have their stomach showing during the summer months.
Individuals who are having problems with their gallbladder, battling with gallstones, dealing with inflammation, or having some form of dysfunction or infection in the area may want to take the time to explore robotic single site gallbladder surgery. This procedure, especially when performed by our experienced doctor, is one of the safest, quickest ways to have a gallbladder removed.
The procedure is performed using the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Our is in complete control of the system throughout the entire process. Basically, what the system does is translate the surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, more precise movements as it manipulates tiny instruments inside your body, allowing for a surgery that could not be performed with human hands alone.
