Multiport Cholecystectomy

Learn More about Your Robotic Surgery

Learn more about your upcoming minimally invasive robotic surgery with the help of miVIP so that you can be fully prepared for the process, know what you should expect afterwards and know how much the surgery will cost. A gallbladder removal surgery is known as a cholecystectomy and might be recommended by your doctor if you show severe gallbladder symptoms.

With a multiport cholecystectomy procedure, a miVIP surgeon will use a series of small incisions in order to complete the surgery. One of the benefits of having your gallbladder removal surgery done with a da Vinci robotic surgery system is that there’s a good chance you won’t have a scar after the surgery.

How is the Surgery Performed?

During a multiport cholecystectomy procedure:

  • Small plastic tubes are inserted into the incisions
  • Tiny instruments and a camera are introduced into the plastic tubes
  • The camera allows the surgeon to see the patient’s organs since they aren’t otherwise able to like they would with a large incision
You’ll be administered a general anesthesia before your surgeon dissects your gallbladder from the bile duct and liver before removing it through the plastic tubes. Once the gallbladder has been fully removed, the small incisions are sewn back up.

What to Expect After Your Surgery

After your surgery, you can expect to be in some mild pain in your shoulder and abdomen anywhere from 4 to 5 days. You’ll want to make sure that you take all of the medications that you’re given in order that you can recover as soon as possible. You’ll also want to make sure that you only eat light foods for the first few days after your surgery. Your incisions will be closed up with dissolving stitches, so you don’t have to worry about having them removed.

Cost of Procedure

With a laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery, you can expect it to cost roughly $5,500. Before your surgery, make sure that you get in touch with your health insurance provider in order to discuss your deductible and any out-of-pocket expenses that you might have to take care of. miVIP representatives are here to help you develop a financial plan in order to fully and easily take care of the cost of your procedure.

Long Term Prognosis

There are no long term consequences or dietary restrictions once you’ve had your gallbladder removed. There is a chance that bile duct stones can develop weeks, months or years after your surgery.
