Obesity Surgery

Obesity and metabolism surgery has gained great importance due to its high success in the treatment of obesity and it has been used more since it also treats obesity comorbidities(diabetes, hypertension, etc.).


The work is performed with a sense of depth

Gastric bypass surgery is considered the gold standard among these surgeries. The robot used in obesity surgery provides many advantages. Clearer images can be obtained using the robotic surgery system, and doctors can work with a sense of depth since a three dimensional image of the surgery area can be viewed. In addition, since the camera is under the surgeon's control and provides 10x magnification, it works more easily and comfortably in areas that are difficult to reach using narrow and normal laparoscopy, minimizing the injuries that may occur during operation.

It reduces the risk of leakage

Robotic surgery is performed using very small incisions and offers better aesthetic results. Postoperative side effects that can prolong the duration of hospital stay such as bleeding and leakage can be minimized. The most important problem after surgery in patients undergoing obesity surgery is leakage. It was shown that robotic surgery significantly reduces leakage rate compared to laparoscopic surgery.

It requires experience

Especially obesity operations are difficult to learn and perform even if they are performed laparoscopically and side effects put patients' lives at risk. Robotic surgery provides great convenience to both the surgeon and the patient in surgeries that require a high skill level and experience such as gastric bypass surgery.
