Section of Minimally Invasive, Robotic and Bariatric Surgery

Minimally invasive and robotic surgery tends to result in shorter hospital stay, less pain and scarring, less risk of wound infections, less blood loss and fewer transfusions, faster recovery, and ultimately, quicker return to normal activities.

Alongside the utilization of the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, which provides considerable potential benefits to minimally invasive surgery when compared to standard laparoscopic approach, our physicians also offer several types of bariatric surgery, including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and surgical revisions of previous bariatric surgery, all with the support of a comprehensive and multidisciplinary team to help you achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.
