Robotic Mini Gastric Bypass
Mini gastric bypass has gained a lot of attention over the last decades, especially because of the superior results in context to sustained weight loss and resolution of comorbidities. Robotic Mini Gastric Bypass is a minimally invasive procedure, requires less time in the operating room, is less prone to internal hernias, easily amenable to reversal, provides good metabolic and weight loss results. This procedure has a relatively bigger stomach pouch as compared to other surgeries, which gives you the luxury to eat the moderate volume of food and still lose significant weight.
How It Works
Mini gastric bypass works with the combination of restriction and malabsorption concept, that gives a two-way weight loss effect. 3D vision, state-of-the-art instruments, and the camera provides the surgeon with better dexterity and helps them to reach out to small spaces with a computer-controlled system. This variation of the gastric bypass has a different technique as it has a bigger gastric pouch and closes the significant portion of the stomach. It delays the process of emptying the stomach and results in longer fullness feeling.
This weight loss procedure brought a revolutionary change in the bariatric surgery as patients can start eating within days of bypass unlike being on a liquid diet for 6 weeks after traditional weight-loss surgeries. With the robotic mini-gastric bypass, about 60% to 80% excess weight can be reduced.
Why choose a robotic procedure?
- Fewer complications
- Quicker recovery
- Shorter hospital stay
