Robotic gastric bypass is a type of weight loss/bariatric surgery to treat obesity (excessive weight). In this surgery, the stomach size is reduced to limit your food intake and the small intestine is re-routed to reduce the absorption of food. It is performed using a da Vinci robotic surgical device.
Robotic sleeve gastrectomy is a weight loss or bariatric surgical procedure for the treatment of obesity. It is performed with the help of a da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System. In this procedure, about 60-80% of your stomach is removed. This restricts your food intake and helps control and reduce your weight to prevent obesity-related health disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.
Colorectal surgery is the surgical removal of all or a part of the colon or the rectum. The colon is also known as the large intestine or large bowel. The rectum is the lower part of the large intestine that is connected to the sigmoid colon (lowermost part of the colon). The colon and the rectum function to store and expel processed food and waste.
The colon, also called the large intestine, along with the rectum function to store and expel digested food and waste. Robotic colon resection is the surgical removal of all or a part of the colon using robotic assistance. It is usually performed using the da Vinci surgical system which consists of three components- the surgeon’s console, robotic arms, and a video tower.
Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that is performed by your surgeon with the help of robotic arms that hold and manipulate the special surgical instruments. Gastrointestinal (GI) conditions occur due to structural and functional abnormalities of the stomach and intestine. Many GI conditions can be treated with robotic surgery.
