da Vinci ® Bariatric Procedures

Robotic Obesity Surgery

The quest to lose weight permanently can be an up-and-down battle. If you’ve all but given up or find your weight loss goals slipping away, bariatric or weight loss surgery can offer you hope. miVIP Los Angeles Surgery Centers offer an advanced approach to this surgical type – using the da Vinci Surgical System, which offers smaller incisions, less pain and a faster recovery time than traditional minimally invasive surgical procedures.

The da Vinci system involves utilizing high-definition, three-dimensional imaging coupled with a specialized surgical platform that allows your surgeon to use controls that then move within your body with the ultimate precision.

da Vinci Bariatric Surgery Procedures Offered at miVIP Los Angeles Centers

Bariatric surgery is not a one-size-fits-all approach. That’s why at miVIP Surgery Centers, surgeons can perform a number of surgical approaches based on your weight loss goals. Examples include:

Gastric Bypass Surgery: Offering the fastest and most-dramatic weight loss results, this surgery involves removing a portion of the stomach and re-connecting it at the midpoint or lower in the small intestine. The da Vinci Surgical System is capable of two different types of gastric bypass surgery – a Roux-en-Y and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (typically performed for people with a body mass index greater than 50).

Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery: This surgery involves removing a portion of the stomach (making the stomach approximately the size of a banana) to help you feel fuller faster without affecting intestinal absorption. Patients may lose up to 55 percent of their body weight over a two- to three-year period.

Gastric Banding: This reversible surgery involves placing an adjustable silicone band around your stomach to reduce its size, increasing feelings of fullness when eating less food. The band has a plastic tube where saline can be added or removed. The adjustability of the gastric band means your miVIP surgeon can tighten the band when needed to improve weight loss results.

The da Vinci Robotic Bariatric Surgery Difference

Whether you are hoping to stop taking your high blood pressure medications for good, eradicate your sleep apnea symptoms or simply to improve your appearance, da Vinci bariatric procedures can offer these benefits and more. Imagine losing more than 50 percent of your excess body weight — these are the type of results da Vinci  bariatric surgery can offer you.

Your miVIP surgeon will perform rigorous testing to ensure you are the right candidate for bariatric surgery. Candidates for obesity surgery typically:

  • Have a body mass index of 35 or greater
  • Have complicating conditions related to obesity, such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high cholesterol or high blood pressure
  • Have tried seemingly every diet and exercise technique available with little-to-no success
  • Are ready to make the lifestyle changes that can ensure lasting weight loss

If you are ready to get off the heartbreaking cycle of weight loss and gain, da Vinci bariatric surgery at miVIP Los Angeles Surgery Centers can offer you hope and improved surgical outcomes.
