Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, which allows for more accuracy because of its precise and highly controlled movements. At The Bariatric Experts with convenient office locations in Denton, Abilene, and Frisco, Texas, bariatric and minimally invasive surgery specialist Scott Stowers, DO, conducts safe and effective robotic surgery using the cutting-edge da Vinci Xi system. To learn more about robotic surgery and its significance, consult with a Frisco robotic surgery specialist by calling the Bariatric Experts office or request an appointment online. 

Utilizing The State-Of-The-Art Da Vinci Surgical System Xi? 

At Bariatric Experts, Dr. Sowers and his team boast offering the safest and most effective minimally-invasive surgical procedures utilizing the cutting-edge da Vinci Surgical System Xi. This robotically guided gastric sleeve lets your provider conduct surgery with only a few tiny incisions but with improved precision, control, and vision. 

In the reliable hands of the surgical experts at Bariatric Experts, this advanced technology provides a more advanced alternative to conventional laparoscopy and open surgery, with benefits such as: 

-   Reduced blood loss 
-   Significant reduction in discomfort and pain 
-   Reduced recovery time and resume everyday life 
-   Smaller incisions with alleviated risk of infection and reduced scarring 
-   In most cases, more profound clinical outcomes 

How Are Robotic-Assisted Surgeries Conducted? 

Robotic surgery, also known as robotic-assisted surgery, is a more accurate, minimally-invasive, and laparoscopic surgery requires fewer incisions. A robotic-assisted gastric sleeve lets your provider conduct the surgery using only a few incisions with enhanced control, precision, and vision. 

These robots have high agility, which allows the surgeon to operate in constricted spaces of the body-even in some areas, which may otherwise be unreachable with open surgery efficiently. Conventional open surgery needs huge incisions and may result in more pain, more excellent recovery time, and more scarring than laparoscopic incisions. 

What To Expect During Surgery? 

Your surgeon uses a computer console situated in the operating room to control the small instruments mounted on three robotic arms. A 3D camera is attached to the fourth robotic arm to magnify the surgical area. These robotic arms are directed by the surgeon’s hand, finger, and wrist movements. 

These movements are then transmitted to the instruments attached to the robot. The robot's arms mimic the surgeon's moves with the same range of motion to ensure top-level precision. By the patient's bedside, the surgical team stands in place to monitor the robot's movements. 

What Considerations And Risks Are Associated With Bariatric Surgery? 

These include gastric bypass (stomach reduction surgery), duodenal switch and sleeve gastrectomy, and/or narrowing at the point where the two parts of the bowel were reattached. Patients with morbid obesity may be exempted from endoscopic surgery. 

In conclusion, Dr. Stowers helps patients decide whether or not bariatric surgery is needed for their case. He specialized in proven minimally-invasive techniques, including gastric bypass, gastric band removal, and gastric sleeve surgery. Through robotic-assisted surgery, patients can enjoy reduced risks and complications associated with open surgery.
