    Abstract: Introduction: Free hand laparoscopic camera controller (FHLCC) is a new innovative robotic device that has been recently implemented and adopted in laparoscopic surgery, providing the surgeon more comfort in carrying out his surgical skills without the difficulties related to the mutual understanding of the movements of the camera. Case presentation: We report the first case of laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed in our hospital with the aid of the free hand laparoscopic camera controller. Conclusion: Free hand laparoscopic camera controller provides the surgeon comfort in carrying out his surgical skills without the difficulties related to the mutual understanding of the movements of the camera. It combines the benefits of minimally invasive and robotic assisted surgery, increases efficiencies and improves patient recovery times.
