Robotic surgery advantages

In addition to laparoscopic surgery – which is the predominant technique for weight loss surgery today, Franciscan surgeons perform robotic-assisted bariatric surgery using the da Vinci® Surgical System for improved vision, range of motion, and surgical precision. Patients undergoing a robotic procedure, such as robotic gastric bypass surgery, may benefit from:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Better clinical outcomes

Robotic-assisted weight loss surgeries take place in at St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way, Washington.
