da Vinci® Gallbladder Surgery

da Vinci® Surgery for gallbladder disease (cholecystectomy)

When medicine and dietary changes do not help with symptoms related to the gallbladder, including gallstones, surgery may be recommended. Removing the gallbladder can control or eliminate severe symptoms. The gallbladder is an organ that you can live without.

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat gallbladder disease, you may be a candidate for a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure – da Vinci Surgery. Using the most advanced technology available, the da Vinci System enables your doctor to perform the delicate gallbladder removal operation with breakthrough precision, vision, dexterity and improved access to the affected area.

da Vinci cholecystectomy offers gallbladder patients several potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Low risk of complications
  • Low blood loss and need for transfusions

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient, condition and procedure. That's why it is important to always talk to your doctor about all treatment options, the risks and benefits.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.

Texas law prohibits hospitals from practicing medicine. The physicians on the Methodist Health System medical staff, including those trained in the da Vinci Surgical System, are independent practitioners who are not employees or agents of Methodist Health System or any of its affiliated hospitals.
