Laparoscopic General Surgery and Bariatric Surgery or Weight Loss Surgery
There are people for whom losing weight quickly can readily be done by following a strict diet and workout regiment, but this is not the case for everyone. Some people do not have the ability to adhere to a strict schedule, have diet restrictions, or are at a point that the extra weight is causing or at risk of causing serious health risks, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, multiple joint pain, chronic low back pain, etc. Losing weight is often a necessary part of creating a healthier lifestyle for yourself. But talking about losing weight is a whole lot easier than actually getting it done. That is because there are a lot of barriers one might face on their journey to weight loss, including a limited schedule in which to work out and often times that is just the way we are built to be. For such people and situations, laparoscopic bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery may be the best solution.
Bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery is a term that refers collectively to gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve, lap band placement and other weight-loss surgeries, which means that laparoscopic surgery is done with the aim of helping a person lose weight when diet and exercise fail. What type of bariatric surgery your surgeon and a medical professional will recommend for you will depend upon your unique situation that is a combination of what is impeding your weight loss and requires for you to get back in optimal health. Some types of bariatric surgery will limit how much food a person can eat by reducing the actual size of the stomach, while other types of bariatric surgery will be done with the aim of limiting how the body absorbs nutrients, and some will still do both. I will be more than happy to explain each and everyone of these mainstream weight loss surgeries with you including their risks, benefits and alternatives during a surgical consultation.
Laparoscopic surgery is generally defined as a minimally invasive type of surgery in which tiny abdominal incisions will be made so that a specialized telescope (also called a laparoscope) is used in order to allow surgeons to view the internal organs of the abdomen. This laparoscopic surgery makes it possible for more precise incisions to be made. Furthermore, I am employing the assistance of a Davinci Robot during these laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgeries. The Davinci Robot has four arms that I control through a console so when I am doing the surgeries, it feels like I am operating with four hands. Can you imagine having four hands? You will be more efficient at doing any task! So Davinci Robotic Surgery is a more efficient way of doing minimally invasive surgery. This is cutting-edge surgical technology so, of course, I am also using the most advanced monitor systems so the surgeons can see better. If your surgeon can see better what they doing inside your body, of course, the occurrence of complications is reduced. Davinci Robotic Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgeries are more efficient and safer way of performing surgeries.
