Robotic Sleeve Gastrectomy
At Advanced Laparoscopic Associates, we are able to perform robotic gastric sleeve surgery. Our state-of-the-art surgical robot enables our surgeons to perform finer hand movements and see the area of operation better than without the tool.
Our surgical robot has four arms, three of which can manipulate surgical tools. The last is a high-definition camera that gives our surgeons a picture-perfect, 3-D view of the abdominal cavity. The surgeon sits at a console and controls the robot, which is capable of far more precise movements and a much greater range of motion than a human.
In studies comparing robotic sleeve gastrectomy to laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, the two procedures had similar costs, similar lengths of operation and similar recovery times. However, some studies suggested robotic sleeve gastrectomies had much lower rates of post-surgical complications.
