This video demonstrates the case of a 28-year-old female patient who underwent a robotic cholecystectomy for symptomatic calculous gallbladder. The patient had no past medical or surgical history. In October 2018, the patient presented with an acute mild pancreatitis which had a favorable evolution under medical treatment. Blood tests showed cytolysis without cholestasis. Bili-MRI showed a calculous gallbladder with no signs of complication and no biliary tract dilatation. A cholecystectomy was then indicated. Preoperative work-up did not show anything abnormal.
