 Here we report our efforts toward an efficient operating room management for laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and its economic usefulness. 【Methods】 An LC was performed by two surgeons with one circulating nurse but no scrub nurses. At our hospital, early LC after the onset has been the first-choice treatment for acute cholecystitis. Personnel costs were analyzed for the economic evaluation of these efforts. 【Results】 Three LCs per day could be performed in an operating room. Personnel costs were reduced by 54,180 yen per LC, which corresponds to savings of 10,565,100 yen (annually 195 LCs on an average) per year. 【Conclusion】 Our efforts of performing LCs using the minimum required number of surgical team members and surgical instruments enabled an efficient operating room management and were proved to be economically useful.
