Technological Advancements in Robotic Bariatric Surgery
As we begin 2018, it’s remarkable to reflect on the technological advancements achieved thus far in medicine. As technology continues to advance in all facets of our lives, so too have medical technologies become more readily available. Dr. Brown has been utilizing the da Vinci robot to perform bariatric surgery since 2015 because it vastly reduces pain and recovery time for patients after surgery.
He has conducted over 6,000 bariatric procedures, over 600 of which were performed robotically. At Colorado Bariatric Surgery Institute, we are fortunate to have the most experienced robotic bariatric surgeon in the Rocky Mountain region. Our team is the only bariatric robotic epicenter in Colorado and is fully dedicated to helping patients live happier, healthier lives.
Dr. Brown operates the arms of the robot with the touch of his fingers, allowing him the dexterity to move the machine much like he would move his own hands. This guarantees precision during the procedure, providing a benefit over open or even laparoscopic bariatric procedures.
