Gallstone Treatment and Gallbladder Surgery

Gallbladder Treatment and Gallbladder Surgery Banner

Gallbladder disorders are among the most common conditions seen and treated by ARC general surgeons. While a significant number of adults have gallstones, they don’t always cause clinical symptoms. ARC general surgeons can properly evaluate patients and discuss surgical and non-surgical options.

For those patients that meet the criteria for surgical intervention, ARC general surgeons can discuss a variety of approaches and tailor your treatment. Through the use of modern technology, like the da Vinci robotic platform, the vast majority of procedures requiring gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) can be done on an outpatient basis with a quick return to a normal lifestyle.

Cholecystectomy (Laparoscopic and Robotic)

Cholecystectomy (Laparoscopic and Robotic)

A cholecystectomy is surgery to remove your gallbladder, a small organ under your liver. It's on the upper right side of your belly (abdomen), and stores a digestive juice called bile that is made in the liver. A laparoscopic cholecystectomy is less invasive, which means it uses very small incisions in your belly. The benefits of a laparoscopic proceduce is less bleeding and the recovery time is usually shorter than an open surgery.
