What is Robotic surgery?
Robotic surgery is performed with the Da Vinci Xi surgical robot, a tool to help surgeons perform Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery. It is not autonomous but under the full control of the surgeon at all times.
There are distinct benefits to using the Da Vinci robot during surgery. Having a steady platform and HD vision means clearer and more precise views and superior ergonomics allowing our surgeons to carry out complex tasks precisely, like sewing to create joins in the bowel, which is a key part of Gastric Bypass surgery.
Our surgeons are trained and accredited to use the latest cutting edge Da Vinci Xi Robot.
Please discuss with your surgeon if you are a candidate for Robotic surgery.
