Robotic Surgery

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]The Da Vinci Surgical system gives bariatric surgeons another option in the fight against obesity. First the high definition cameras deployed during surgery can offer a field of vision that is far superior to previous generations of laparoscopes. The field of vision is both magnified and 3 dimensional. Further, the robot has ‘wristed’ arms, again controlled by the surgeon, that have an even greater range of motion than humans. These wrists allow movements that simply aren’t possible with traditional laparoscopic tools, thus, allowing the surgeon to have more precision, dexterity and control.
Compared to conventional laparoscopic procedures, robotic weight loss surgery offers patients numerous potential benefits, including:

  • Fewer Complications
  • Less trauma to the body
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Lower infection rates
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Much lower rate of gastrointestinal leaks
  • Lower risk of needing follow-up surgery
