Robotic-Assisted Weight Loss Surgery in Dallas
Surgery no longer requires an extended hospital stay and lengthy recovery. Today’s advanced technology now makes surgical procedures, like weight loss surgery, easier and less invasive, so recovery time is shorter.
White Rock Medical Center now has the latest, minimally invasive surgical technologies that assure you get the quality medical care you need while enjoying a smooth return to your daily life.
The da Vinci surgical system is one way we can offer a minimally invasive weight loss surgery option for patients considering gastric sleeve surgery. The gastric sleeve procedure works by reducing the size of the stomach by converting it into a narrow tube.
Robotic-Assisted Surgery: The Procedure
The da Vinci surgical system features a magnified, 3D high-definition vision system and special instruments that bend and rotate far greater than traditional laparoscopic techniques. It even has a greater range of motion than the human wrist. The da Vinci enables your doctor to operate with enhanced vision, dexterity and control.
Potential benefits of robotic-assisted weight loss surgery may include:
- Less pain
- Lower risk of infections
- Decrease in blood loss
- Less scarring
- Fewer complications
- Shorter recovery time
- Faster return to normal daily activities

What to Expect During Robotic -Assisted Weight Loss Surgery
First, you will receive general anesthesia before your weight loss surgery begins. Then, your surgeon will make tiny incisions on your abdomen that allow the minimally invasive tools to reach your stomach. The gastric sleeve will reduce the size of your stomach to approximately one-quarter of its normal size.
Potential Risks & Considerations Related to Bariatric Surgery May Include
As with any surgery, there can be some risks. They can include:
- Fluid leak in the gastrointestinal system
- Abdominal pain
- Intestinal blockage
- Nausea with vomiting
In addition to these risks, there are risks related to minimally invasive surgery, including robotic-assisted weight loss surgery, such as hernia (bulging tissue) at the incision site. Some people may not be ideal candidates for robotic-assisted weight loss surgery. Our care experts will help create a custom plan of care for you.
What to Expect After Robotic-Assisted Weight Loss Surgery
