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

Who Should Have Gastric Bypass Surgery?


Gastric bypass surgery is considered the gold standard among these surgeries. The robot used in obesity surgeries provides many advantages. With the robotic surgery system, clearer images can be obtained and the doctor can work with a sense of depth as three-dimensional images of the surgery area can be taken. In addition, since the camera is under the control of the surgeon and has a 10-fold magnification, it works more easily and comfortably in narrow areas that are difficult to reach with normal laparoscopy, and injuries that may occur during surgery are minimized.

How are Robotic Surgery Performed?


Surgeries performed with the robotic surgery method are performed with very small incisions and provide better aesthetic results. Side effects that may occur after surgery, such as bleeding and leakage, which prolong the patient's hospital stay, can be reduced. The most important postoperative problem in patients undergoing bariatric surgery is leakage. Robotic surgery has been shown to significantly reduce the leak rate compared to laparoscopic surgeries.

Especially obesity surgeries, even if they are performed laparoscopically, are difficult surgeries to learn and perform, and when side effects occur, they put the patient's life at risk. Robotic surgery provides great convenience to the surgeon and the patient in surgeries that require high skill and experience, such as gastric bypass surgery.
