da Vinci cholecystectomy

Also known as: Robotic-assisted cholecystectomy, da Vinci gallbladder surgery, Robotic-assisted gallbladder surgery

Minimally-invasive surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System is an effective alternative to traditional open and laparoscopic surgery that may allow physicians to provide patients with the best of both open approaches.

With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons can now operate through a few tiny (one to two centemeter) incisions with greater precision and control. da Vinci helps surgeons minimize the pain and risk associated with traditional surgery, while increasing the chances for a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Providence Health & Services was the first hospital system in Oregon to invest in robotic technology, leading a breakthrough in minimally invasive surgical care.
