DA VINCI BARIATRIC SURGERY
Da Vinci bariatric surgery in New Jersey represents a cutting-edge advancement in weight loss procedures. NJ Advanced Surgery utilizes this robotic-assisted technology to enhance surgical precision, reduce incision size, and promote faster recovery, simplifying your weight loss journey.
ACHIEVE YOUR WEIGHT GOALS WITH ROBOTIC PRECISION
Da Vinci Bariatric Surgery is a revolutionary, robot-assisted weight loss surgery. By integrating state-of-the-art robotic technology, surgeons can operate through small incisions with greater accuracy, minimizing discomfort and scarring for patients. This innovative approach enhances the safety and effectiveness of various bariatric procedures, such as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and duodenal switch, helping you achieve your weight goals with optimal results.
TRADITIONAL OPEN SURGERY VS. DAVINCI BARIATRIC SURGERY
TRADITIONAL OPEN SURGERY
In traditional open bariatric surgery, a large incision of 5 to 6 inches is made above the stomach area. This approach exposes a significant portion of the patient’s stomach and gut to the risk of damage and infection. Furthermore, the sizable incision can lead to lengthy and conspicuous surgical scars, leading to self-consciousness and self-esteem issues.
DAVINCI BARIATRIC SURGERY
With the DaVinci approach, some of the best bariatric surgeons in New Jersey maintain 100% control throughout the procedure. By utilizing 2-3 small incisions near the treatment area, telescopic probes and equipment are inserted to enable a detailed view of the body. The surgeon uses the 3D HD view and the flexible robotic hands to make complex adjustments without damaging the surrounding tissues. This minimizes the risk of infection, reduces scarring, and accelerates recovery.
BENEFITS OF DAVINCI BARIATRIC SURGERY:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Smaller incisions and reduced scarring
- Precise surgery in high BMI patients
- Enhanced maneuverability with rotating robotic arms
- Improved visualization with high-definition 3-D camera
- Greater control over delicate movements
- Expanded treatment options for complex cases
- Reduced risk of infections and complications
- Faster recovery and shorter hospital stays
WHY USE ROBOTICS IN BARIATRIC SURGERY
CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH BMI PATIENTS
Patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) exceeding 55 usually have thicker abdominal walls, which makes traditional laparoscopic surgery far more challenging. The DaVinci robot streamlines the process, enabling successful bariatric surgery with heightened ease. This allows our surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgeries with enhanced precision.
UNMATCHED FLEXIBILITY AND PRECISION
DaVinci bariatric surgery in New Jersey is far more precise because of the remarkable dexterity of the robotic arms. The robotic DaVinci arms can rotate 360 degrees, mimicking the rotation of a human wrist. This flexibility allows surgeons to operate in confined spaces and navigate through thicker abdominal walls with greater ease than traditional laparoscopic tools.
ENHANCED VISUALIZATION AND CONTROL
Robotic surgery employs a high-definition, 3-D camera system that delivers superior visual clarity, crucial when operating around delicate tissues. The enhanced visualization empowers surgeons to make precise movements without damaging the surrounding structures, even in complex procedures. This minimizes the risk of complications and enhances patient safety.
EXPANDING TREATMENT OPTIONS
The incorporation of robotic technology broadens the spectrum of patients who can benefit from bariatric procedures. Dr. Prokurat specializes in performing the biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch using the robot. This procedure is particularly effective for individuals with exceedingly high BMIs, offering substantial and sustainable weight loss results.
THE DAVINCI SYSTEM CAN ASSIST WITH THE FOLLOWING…
Sleeve gastrectomy is a bariatric procedure performed by some of the best bariatric surgeons in New Jersey where approximately 75-85% of the stomach is removed, creating a smaller “sleeve-like” stomach. This reduction in stomach size leads to decreased hunger and a sense of fullness with smaller meals. By removing the portion of the stomach that produces the hunger-inducing hormone ghrelin, the procedure restricts food intake and influences hormonal signals, contributing to weight loss and improved metabolic control.
Gastric bypass involves the creation of a smaller stomach pouch by dividing the upper part of the stomach. This pouch is connected to the small intestine, bypassing a portion of the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine. This restricts food intake and reduces nutrient absorption. Post Da Vinci bariatric surgery in New Jersey, it leads to restrictive and malabsorptive effects, resulting in reduced calorie intake and changes in gut hormone signaling, contributing to weight loss.
The duodenal switch is a complex bariatric procedure involving two distinct steps. First, a sleeve gastrectomy is performed, reducing the stomach’s size. Then, a significant portion of the small intestine is bypassed, allowing food to skip a part of the intestine where nutrient absorption occurs. This combination of restriction and nutrient malabsorption leads to substantial weight loss. The procedure also affects gut hormones that regulate appetite and metabolism.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR DAVINCI BARIATRIC SURGERY?
Primarily, individuals at risk of obesity or diagnosed as obese are ideal candidates for bariatric surgery. However, after a consultation with Dr. Prokurat, even non-obese individuals might be considered based on their circumstances. Pregnant individuals or those planning pregnancy are advised against the surgery, as it could impact their health and the well-being of the baby. Each case is evaluated carefully to ensure the best outcomes and safety.
