Robotic Bariatric Surgery in Denver, Colorado

At Colorado Bariatric Surgery Institute, we specialize in providing weight-loss solutions to patients from all over Denver and Colorado. We have always provided a full range of bariatric procedures to help our patients with long-term weight loss – from bariatric surgery and sleeve gastrectomy to gastric bypass and revisional bariatric surgery. Most importantly, our procedures are for those who have been unsuccessful in achieving their weight loss goals through traditional methods such as exercise and diet. Our very own Dr. Thomas Brown is by far the most experienced and highly skilled robotic bariatric surgeon in Denver, boasting the best robotic bariatric record in the entire Western United States.

Robotic Bariatric Surgery

Robotic bariatric surgery is the most advanced form of surgical technology available for weight loss surgery. Unlike laparoscopic procedures, this minimally invasive surgery is performed with the modern Intuitive da Vinci robot, providing unparalleled precision during procedures. This top-of-the-line instrument provides Dr. Brown with a sharp 3D image during the surgery, allowing for a better perception inside the body as well as the ability to monitor the patient's blood supply to the stomach. Additionally, thanks to the robot's precise movements, patients experience minimal bleeding and pain, resulting in faster recovery times and shorter hospital stays.

Bariatric Surgery Options in Denver

For decades, our team has been dedicated to making the bariatric surgery process as easy and stress-free as possible for our patients. We understand the pain and challenges that you have been facing and strive to ensure that you will have the best experience possible. At our institute, we offer a variety of bariatric surgery types, including:

Robotic bariatric surgery has revolutionized the way operations are performed, thanks to its advanced technology. This robotic platform, with its precise computerized measurements, eliminates operator error that can result in less bleeding, less pain, and a shorter hospital stay for patients. This improved precision and accuracy make robotic bariatric surgery a viable and safe option for those seeking to undergo a bariatric procedure.

The sleeve gastrectomy is now one of the most commonly performed bariatric procedures. In this procedure, a large portion of the stomach is removed, with the remaining part being formed into a thin tube-like structure known as the “sleeve.” This helps to promote weight loss and reset patients' metabolism by reducing their appetite and the amount of food the body can store.

Gastric bypass surgery is one of the gold standards in bariatric surgery due to its effectiveness, safety, and long-term success rate. It involves creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach and attaching a segment of the intestine to it, bypassing part of the digestive system. This procedure leads to significant weight loss and can help reduce the risk of related health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea.

Revisional weight loss surgery may be necessary when a patient has not achieved adequate weight loss from their initial surgery or has experienced complications from a previous procedure. Our team will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine whether a second weight loss surgery is necessary.
