da Vinci Prostate Procedures - Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass

If your doctor recommends surgery to control your weight, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Gastric Bypass, potentially the most effective, least invasive option for weight loss surgery. da Vinci Gastric Bypass allows surgeons to provide the gold standard treatment,1 using only a few small incisions.

Open Surgical Incision vs da Vinci® Gastric Bypass

da Vinci Gastric Bypass offers the potential for better outcomes than with open or laparoscopic approaches. This is because da Vinci provides surgeons with superior visualization, dexterity, control and ergonomics required for this technically demanding operation. da Vinci allows surgeons to operate on higher-BMI patients; it can result in shorter procedures times and may offer reduced risk for serious complications by providing surgeons with superior visualization and instrumentation. 2

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While da Vinci Gastric Bypass is considered safe and effective, it may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
