Gall Bladder Removal Surgery 

(Cholecystectomy)

From $4,300 to $5,300 USD

The Gall Bladder is a tear-drop shaped sac that sits beneath the liver. It collects bile, which is produced by the liver. The gall bladder releases the bile after eating to aid digestion.

Gallbladder problems can arise if the organ doesn’t function properly. Most commonly, gallstones form out of the solid particles of cholesterol and bile salts. These small hard masses develop in the gallbladder or bile duct and can cause extreme pain and illness. If the gallstones block the flow of bile, causing complications and severe pain, it may be necessary to conduct a cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal).

In addition, they may experience risks related to minimally invasive surgery such as: conversion to open surgery, creating more and larger incisions, urinary retention and bulging tissue in the incision site.

Our patients will undergo a series of evaluations for our surgeons, to make an informed decision when it comes to their procedure. They should discuss all the possible options the patient has before deciding on the da Vinci assisted Cholecystectomy.

Our surgeon controls the da Vinci Surgical System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, precise movements of the small and thin instruments inside your body. The surgery is performed through one incision in the belly button, which dramatically limits visible scarring.
