Gallbladder Removal through the Belly Button

Surgeons at Florida Hospital are the first in Central Florida offering gallbladder removal with only a single half-inch incision through a patient’s belly button. With this innovative approach, patients have little to no scarring because operating through the belly button actually hides the scar. Other benefits include reduced pain and need for pain medications as well as decreased risk of infection. Additionally, patients go home the same day of their surgery and get back to work or activity in only a few days.
