da Vinci Gastric Bypass provides your surgeon numerous technical advantages — including improved ergonomics, better visualization and instrumentation. These advantages may allow him or her to provide you with minimally invasive surgery even if you are extremely obese. da Vinci robotic-assisted Laparoscopy has also proven to shorten procedures time and significantly reduce the risk of serious complications when compared to conventional Laparoscopy.
Similar to conventional Laparoscopy, da Vinci Gastric Bypass may also offer numerous potential benefits when compared with traditional open surgery, 3 including:
As with any surgery, the benefits of da Vinci robotic surgery 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.
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for da Vinci robotic gastric bypass surgery is to schedule a consultation with a qualified surgeon. Generally, candidates for the surgery include individuals who are morbidly obese and have a BMI of 40 or higher, or who have a BMI of 35 or higher and have other obesity-related health issues such as type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea.
Patients typically spend one to three days in the hospital after da Vinci robotic gastric bypass surgery. During this time, they will be closely monitored by medical staff and may receive pain medication and other treatments as needed. Following discharge from the hospital, patients will continue to recover at home and will need to follow a strict diet and exercise routine in order to optimize their long-term weight loss and health outcomes.
