ROBOTIC SURGERY FOR BARIATRIC PATIENTS
Robotic surgery can be an effective and less invasive option for weight loss. Using advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques, OHSU surgeons can perform bariatric surgery for weight loss with only a few small incisions.
ADVANTAGES OF ROBOTIC SURGERY FOR BARIATRIC CARE
Robotic surgery gives your doctor the control and precision of open surgery, without the need for major incisions. It uses 3-D technology to give your doctor a more accurate and precise view of the operating area. Your doctor views the area on a high-resolution monitor and performs the surgery with hand movements that are carried out by the robotic instruments.
- Less discomfort and blood loss after surgery
