Virtually Scarless Gallbladder Removal

The da Vinci® Single-Site™ robotic surgery system makes this new minimally invasive procedure possible. A traditional laparoscopic procedure for gallbladder removal requires four small incisions and typical recovery is one week. Now, there is a procedure that offers only one small incision that is usually less than an inch.

Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center has been performing the single-incision surgery since April of last year and is one of two hospitals in Nebraska offering this cutting-edge surgery. Patients experience less pain, faster recovery, a shorter hospital stay and minimal scarring.

Hear Dr. Fitzke and Dr. Windle explain how the procedure works.
