Bariatric Surgery

If your doctor recommends surgery to control your weight, you may be a candidate for da Vinci® Gastric Bypass: potentially the most effective, least invasive option for weight loss surgery. da Vinci® Gastric Bypass allows surgeons to provide the gold standard treatment, using only a few small incisions.

da Vinci® Gastric Bypass offers numerous potential benefits over open abdominal surgery, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer Complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal activities

In addition, da Vinci® Gastric Bypass offers the potential for better outcomes than with open or laparoscopic approaches. This is because da Vinci® provides surgeons with superior instrumentation, visualization, dexterity, control, and ergonomics required for this technically demanding operation. da Vinci® allows surgeons to operate on higher-BMI patients; it can result in shorter procedures times and may offer reduced risk for serious complications.

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While da Vinci® Gastric Bypass is considered safe and effective, it may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
