When medicine and dietary changes do not help with symptoms related to the gallbladder, gallbladder removal may be recommended. Removing the gallbladder robotically or laparoscopically can control or eliminate severe symptoms. The gallbladder is an organ that you can live without. If your doctor recommends surgery to treat gallbladder disease, you may be a candidate for a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure – da Vinci Robotic Gallbladder Surgery. Using the most advanced technology available, the da Vinci System enables Dr. McDermott to perform this delicate operation with breakthrough precision, superior vision, and dexterity.

“Weight loss surgery was a fantastic kick-starter to my lifestyle change. From 300+ lbs. to 180 lbs., the sleeve helped me renew my energy, productivity, and dedication to healthy habits like eating well and working out. I ran my first (ever) 5k in under a year post-op and have never felt better! “
