Gallbladder Surgery

Gallbladder surgery (cholecystectomy) is a common surgical procedure that entails the removal of the gallbladder. PinnacleHealth is at the forefront of this procedure by being able to remove the gallbladder through a single incision.

The gallbladder is a pear-shaped sac near the right lobe of the liver that holds bile. Your  gallbladder may need to be removed if the organ is prone to troublesome gallstones, if it is infected, or becomes cancerous.

More recently PinnacleHealth surgeons are able to remove a gallbladder via the navel through a single incision with the aid of a  da Vinci Si Surgical System.

Single-Site gallbladder surgery through one small incision, provides enhanced surgical precision, control and stability and 3D HD visualization for the surgeon.  For the patient, there is less scarring,  less pain, less blood loss, faster recover, shorter hospital stay and typically improved satisfaction overall.
