da Vinci Gastric Bypass

Commit to Losing Weight Quickly

Of all the bariatric procedures, gastric bypass surgery will give patients the fastest and greatest weight loss results. If you are obese and looking for an effective solution, our team at miVIP Las Vegas can help. Our da Vinci gastric bypass surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure that combines advanced technology with traditional techniques to produce lasting results.

The da Vinci system is so-named because of Leonardo da Vinci, who first invented the robot. Through this system, our staff performs robotic surgery that enhances traditional laparoscopic procedures. Two endoscopic cameras are on one robotic arm, giving the surgeon a complete vision of what is happening as three other arms use instruments to perform the procedure. The physician controls the arms from a console, which means your surgery is both safe and extremely effective.

How the Surgery Is Performed

There are two types of da Vinci gastric bypass surgery, known as Roux-en-Y and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch:

  • Roux-en-Y: This procedure removes most of your stomach, leaving a small pouch that will hold the equivalent of one fluid ounce. By comparison, the average stomach can hold about 3 pints. The stomach is then attached midway through your small intestine. Through shrinking the stomach, you will feel fuller quicker. Additionally, your small intestine loses part of its ability to absorb food, which means there are fewer calories stored in your body.
  • Biliopancreatic diversion: This procedure will also remove part of your stomach and reattach it, but it is reattached further down your small intestine, further reducing its absorption capabilities. Generally, candidates for this procedure have a body mass index greater than 50.

Your physician will help you determine which of these two procedures will help you best meet your goals.

The surgeons at miVIP are all board-certified and considered leaders in our field. Each is equipped with the high level of skill and precision required to perform da Vinci gastric bypass surgery. We insist on only the highest level of professionalism and treat every patient with care and respect.

After the Surgery

One of the biggest advantages of da Vinci gastric bypass surgery is that it uses very small incisions when compared to other minimally invasive procedures. After your surgery, your miVIP surgeon will instruct you to avoid foods that are high in sugar or fat, as your body will not be able to process them correctly. Doing otherwise can result in a number of complications, including nausea, vomiting or even stomach perforation. By committing to eating better, you may lose as much as 65 to 70 percent of your body weight in the few years after the surgery, averaging about 10 to 20 pounds a month.

Cost of the Surgery

Our team at miVIP accepts most PPO and POS insurance. You can call our friendly representatives to discuss how much your robotic surgery may cost you out of pocket.

Other Important Information

Following your robotic surgery, it is important to monitor how your body recovers. If you experience weakness or abdominal pain, you should contact your physician right away. It is also important to tell your doctor if you begin noticing your mental health is suffering as well. Keeping in touch throughout your recovery is imperative to your overall health.
