This is a video abstract submission detailing a robotic completion cholecystectomy in a 56 year-old female that was performed for recurrent subhepatic abscesses and chronic symptoms following unsuccessful operative intervention for initial severe acute cholecystitis. The patient had previously undergone attempted laparoscopic cholecystectomy necessitating conversion to a laparotomy with eventual termination of the procedure with simple drain placement due to a significant inflammatory response limiting adequate visualization of anatomy. A robotic cholecystectomy was thus able to be successfully performed without complication or prolonged operative time.
