The gallbladder is an important organ, but it is not essential for life. Therefore, the standard treatment for symptomatic patients who suffer from gallstones or acute/chronic cholecystitis is to surgically remove the gallbladder and the gallstones.

For over 100 years the cholecystectomy technique evolved little and required a generous abdominal incision but with the advent of laparoscopy, the laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become the “gold standard” in the treatment of gallbladder disease and more than 90% are done using this minimally invasive approach with very low risks.

Even at present times the technique continues evolving and improving, looking for better recovery times with less pain and better aesthetical results, an example of this continuous evolution is the Single Port Access Surgery.
