Minimally invasive procedures

Robot-assisted bariatric surgery is a minimally invasive method that results in improved accuracy and shorter recovery time. Using this method, our surgeons will make a small incision and insert a camera. The 3D view allows the surgeon to make precise micro-movements to complete the surgery. This method causes less scarring and lowers the chance of infection.
