Da Vinci Robotic Sleeve Gastrectomy

da Vinci® Robotic Bariatric Surgery

Instead of the large abdominal incision used in open surgery, da Vinci surgeons make just a few small incisions – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. These features enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Surgery offers the following potential benefits:

  • Low rate of complications
  • Low rate of wound infection
  • Short hospital stay

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Bariatric Surgery offers the following potential benefits compared to traditional laparoscopy:

  • Much lower rate of gastrointestinal leaks
  • Lower risk of needing follow-up surgery
  • Lower risk of converting to open surgery
  • Reduced surgeon fatigue (due to the da Vinci Systemergonomics)

State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

Physicians have used the da Vinci System successfully worldwide in approximately 1.5 million various surgical procedures to date. da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
