Robotic gastric bypass surgery is a bariatric (weight loss) procedure assisted using our advanced da Vinci Robotic System technology. It uses small incisions instead of large abdominal incisions. This makes it less invasive than traditional bariatric surgery.
Robotic gastric bypass surgery reduces the amount of food that an individual can eat by controlling the size of the stomach, which leads to weight loss. By limiting the body’s capacity to absorb calories, this kind of weight loss surgery helps patients shed stubborn extra weight.
After a gastric bypass surgery, a major dietary adjustment is necessary since there’s less room in the stomach for eating. This implies that in order to satisfy your body’s nutritional needs, you must alter your eating preferences.
For one to be considered for the robotic gastric bypass, he/she should:
This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Robotic Surgery System which is a surgical assistance tool that enables bariatric doctors to perform the surgery using computer-guided, magnified 3D visualization.
During the surgery, the da Vinci robot will be manipulated by a surgeon through the patient’s abdominal incisions. The surgeon will manipulate four robotic arms, and the robot will transform those movements into extremely precise movements inside the patient’s body to reduce the size of the stomach.
Robotic bariatric surgery may provide patients with a variety of possible advantages over conventional laparoscopic weight loss operations, including:
There are a few risks and negative side effects associated with robotic gastric bypass surgery. Some of the possible complications include:
In most cases, patients who have undergone robotic bariatric surgery can expect a two-to-three-week recovery period after surgery. To help the body repair during the recovery time, sufficient rest is recommended.
It is also important to abide by the doctor’s recommendations for how many calories he/she should consume during this time. The patient should not exercise throughout the healing process. The patient should work closely with his/her bariatric surgeon and weight loss team to develop a plan to gradually start an exercise program.
