Robotically-Assisted Sleeve Gastrectomy

Robotically-Assisted Sleeve Gastrectomy

You can choose to have a gastric sleeve gastrectomy, also known as sleeve surgery, performed with the da Vinci® Surgical System. This is a minimally invasive option for your weight loss surgery. The robotically-assisted gastric sleeve allows your doctor to perform the surgery using only a few small incisions with enhanced vision, precision and control. Like the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, the procedure limits the amount of food you can eat by reducing the size of your stomach.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
