An effective, minimally invasive surgical procedure. If your doctor recommends gastric bypass to treat obesity, ask about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery. Stateof-the-art da Vinci Surgery requires just a few tiny incisions and provides surgeons with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
da Vinci Surgery offers many potential benefits over traditional laparoscopic gastric bypass, including:
• Low rate of major complications
• Much lower rate of gastrointestinal leaks
• Low rate of wound infection
• Short hospital stay
• Lower risk of follow-up surgery
• Lower risk of converting to traditional
Studies show da Vinci reduces surgeon fatigue compared to conventional laparoscopy. Also, research shows there is a low rate of physical trauma to patients who undergo da Vinci Bariatric surgery.
THE NEW TECHNOLOGY: DA VINCI SURGICAL SYSTEM
The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
Though it is often called a “robot,” da Vinci cannot act on its own. Surgery is performed entirely by your doctor. Together, da Vinci technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result, you may be able to get back to your life without the usual recovery following major surgery.
The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures to date.
