3D Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

3D Laparoscopic Surgical Technology is used to treat obesity and gastrointestinal issues. This technology delivers value to surgeons and patients by improving the accuracy, precision, and speed of surgical tasks, such as dissection, grasping, and suturing when compared with the traditional 2D surgical systems. This is accomplished by providing surgeons with natural 3D vision and depth perception while performing laparoscopic procedures. The articulating design enables surgeons to obtain the critical view of anatomical structures in High Definition 3D without losing the important visual horizon. This is not possible with traditional fixed angle laparoscopes.

The minimally invasive surgical technique is performed through small incisions (5-12 mm) as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional “open” surgical procedures. This reduces pain and bleeding because the imaging tool can magnify an object 20-30 times, giving surgeons a clearer view of blood vessels and small nerves. The new approach helps provide better clinical outcomes while offering less scarring, less pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery.

The latest 3D laparoscopic surgical system is used for operations involving the abdominal organs because it offers many advantages when compared with similar procedures performed through a large open incision. In the past, performing a cholecystectomy was considered a major surgery that meant a patient would risk losing a lot of blood. The use of 3D technology in laparoscopic cholecystectomies means that only small incisions are necessary which leads to better post-operative results. The laparoscopic approach means less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, quicker healing, less pain, faster recovery, and more prompt return to activities when compared to open colon resection.

A cholecystectomy may be an appropriate treatment option for those who have suffered from gallbladder attacks, gallbladder inflammation, inflammation of the pancreas, or have a high risk of gallbladder cancer. The primary advantages of surgical removal of the gallbladder over nonsurgical treatment are the elimination of gallstones and the prevention of gallbladder cancer.
