Advantages of Robotic Bariatric Surgery
Using the robot-assisted Vinci® Surgical System allows Dr. Tillquist to operate through a few small incisions with greater vision, precision, dexterity and control than traditional laparoscopy.
Robotic bariatric surgery provides many potential advantages over traditional surgery, including:*
- Less complications
- Less trauma to the body
- Optimal surgical precision
- Lower rate of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Minimally invasive option for higher BMI patients, who may otherwise not be good candidates for surgery
*While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary.
