Scarless Robotic Surgery
A Virtually Scarless Procedure
If you have been told you need gallbladder surgery, ask your doctor about Single-Site da Vinci Surgery.
This procedure is performed through a single incision using state-of-the-art precision instruments. Patients who choose Single-Site da Vinci Surgery experience a virtually scarless procedure since surgery is performed through only one incision in the navel (belly button), which dramatically limits visible scarring.
The primary potential benefits* of Single-Site da Vinci Surgery include:
- Minimal scarring4,5
- Minimal pain4,6
- Low blood loss4
- Fast recovery6
- Short hospital stay4,6
- High patient satisfaction6
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is unique to each patient and procedure.

The Enabling Technology
da Vinci® Surgical System with Single-Site™ Technology
The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to overcome the limitations of manual laparoscopy with enhanced capabilities, including highdefinition 3D vision and a magnified view.
Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
