Purpose:

The investigators aim to investigate the safety, feasibility and short-term outcomes of Single Incision Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. The investigators hypothesize that Single Incision Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is safe and feasible.


Study summary:

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the standard approach for the treatment of gallbladder disease. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is now performed as an outpatient procedure and it commonly requires the use of 4 separate small incisions. Single incision or single access trans-umbilical surgery may provide less pain, scarring and may improve patient's overall satisfaction. In this phase I trial we aim to evaluate the safety, feasibility and short-term outcomes of Single Incision Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy for the treatment of symptomatic cholelithiasis (gallstones).


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Adults male and female(>18 years old) - Capable of giving informed consent - Ultrasound proven cholelithiasis - Symptomatic cholelithiasis - Elective cholecystectomy Exclusion Criteria: - Pregnancy - Contraindications for general anesthesia - Morbid obesity - Multiple previous abdominal surgeries - Uncontrolled medical conditions - Acute cholecystitis
