In addition to robotic weight loss surgery, experts at Advanced Surgeons offer hernia repair, surgical treatments for gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD), and more.

Is robotic surgery right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for robotic surgery at Advanced Surgeons, your experienced provider discusses your medical history, symptoms you may have, your lifestyle, and your preferences. They check your weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs and complete a comprehensive physical exam.

Your weight loss specialist recommends you undergo blood tests and sometimes heart function tests, X-rays, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out additional health problems.

What happens during robotic surgery?

Right before robotic surgery, you receive general anesthesia to help you fall asleep and avoid pain. Your surgeon sits at a computer console and uses interactive robotic arms to perform your surgery. They use magnified, 3D imagery as guidance for maximum precision and accuracy while altering or repairing tissues inside of your body.

What should I expect after robotic surgery?

After robotic surgery, it’s important to follow all of your post-surgery instructions. Get plenty of rest, take medications and dietary supplements as directed, and follow a special diet during and after the healing process. 

Attend follow-up visits with Advanced Surgeons and support groups as needed for advice about weight loss after surgery.
