Surgical Procedure Technique Robotic Assisted Surgery

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Weight loss surgery is now more efficient than ever with minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgery at Your New Self, Detroit Medical Center’s Weight Loss Solutions program. Surgeons at DMC use the daVinci® si HD Surgical System, the first in Southeast Michigan with a dual console configuration.

This advanced state-of-the-art robotic technology allows weight loss surgeons to use robotic arms and 3-D cameras to perform elaborate, high-tech bariatric surgeries. Sitting in an ergonomically designed control console, doctors manipulate surgical tools through robotic arms with hand and foot controls only a short distance from their patient. The robotic arms hold tiny instruments with 360-degree movement capabilities which allow for greater precision.

Robotic-assisted surgeries typically last no longer than three hours and call for general anesthesia. Post-op recovery commonly requires one night in the hospital and patients experience considerably less pain and discomfort than with traditional surgeries.

Small incision sites (usually 1-2 cm) and shorter recovery times aren’t the only advantages of robotic-assisted surgery. Patients also benefit from the following:

  •  Minimized surgeon fatigue
  •  Elimination of physiological tremors
  •  Small incision sites
  •  Less pain and scarring
  •  Reduced risk of infection

DMC specializes in robotic-assisted surgeries such as Gastric Sleeve and Gastric Bypass.
