Robotic Surgery

The robotic bariatric surgery technique

A robotic bariatric surgery procedure being conducted by a bariatric surgeon in San Antonio, TexasRobotic bariatric surgery is revolutionizing surgery as we know it. Particularly in fields such as urology and gynecology, laparoscopic robotic surgery has become commonplace. In general surgery and weight loss surgery, robotic techniques, such as laparoscopic robotic surgery, are still finding their way into the mainstream. At BMI of Texas, we utilize the robot with weight loss surgery and also for some complicated general surgery.

How robotic bariatric surgery works

The surgeon works from a remote station called a console, which is located several away from patient. In the console, the surgeon is able to view the surgical field in 3-D. Also, the station is equipped for the surgeon’s hands to manipulate the robotic “hands.” The surgeon’s hand and finger movements are translated into real-time, precise movements of the robot “hands” operating inside the patient.

Benefits of robotic bariatric weight loss surgery

The use of the robot system allows for state-of-the-art, robotically assisted laparoscopic surgery, extending the visual field of the surgeon, enhancing dexterity, allowing for greater precision in movements, facilitating a greater range of motion of instrumentation and providing ergonomic comfort for the surgeon.
