Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding

In Adjustable gastric banding procedure, a hollow band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of the stomach. The band is then inflated with a salt solution. It can be tightened or loosened over time to change the size of the passage by increasing or decreasing the amount of salt solution.

Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass

In Gastric Bypass procedure, a small stomach pouch is created to restrict food intake. Next, a Y-shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch to allow food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum (the first segment of the small intestine), and the first portion of the jejunum (the second segment of the small intestine). This bypass reduces the absorption of nutrients and thereby reduces the calorie intake.

Robotic Bariatric and Gastric Surgery

Bariatric and gastric surgery is performed to achieve weight loss in morbidly obese individuals who have failed conventional methods of diet and exercise. There are different types of bariatric surgery but it generally involves reducing the size of the stomach and bypassing a part of the intestine which results in early satiety and malabsorption. These surgeries may now be performed using robotic technology which enables your doctor to use minimally invasive methods while improving dexterity and precision.
