Abstract

The Vizient database was queried for patients admitted with mild to moderate severity of illness scores who subsequently underwent laparoscopic or robotic cholecystectomy for biliary disease. Robotic approach was associated with a significantly higher direct cost and slightly increased rates of overall complications and postoperative infection.
