Advantages of Robotic Bariatric Surgery

Improvement in Visualization

During robotic surgery, the 3D picture provided by the robot gives the surgeon depth perception. Traditional laparoscopic pictures are two-dimensional, so they look like something you would view on television. Depth perception allows for a more precise understanding of the anatomy and decreases the chance for error.

Precise Movement of Instruments

The robotic platform allows the movement of the surgeon’s fingers and hands to be more controlled. This translates into more precise movement of instruments which allows for improved and better surgical techniques. This is different from traditional laparoscopic procedures, which rely on two-pronged instruments.

Ability to Monitor Blood Supply

The robot has the technology to check the blood supply to the stomach at the end of the procedure by injecting a dye into the bloodstream. This shows where the blood is flowing and eliminates any question involving the adequacy of blood supply to the stomach. The robot takes a lot of the guesswork out of surgery, meaning that the physician can focus on the task at hand.
