First Robotic Assisted Gastric Sleeve Surgery Performed in Region “This surgery is a huge breakthrough for patients suffering from obesity that have otherwise not been able to achieve their weight loss objectives,” states Dr. O’Connell. “It gives the surgeon unparalleled precision, dexterity and 3-D vision, making it a more precise operation with better outcomes.” Gastric sleeve surgery is generally performed laparoscopically, but Dr. O'Connell now uses the most advanced technology available to a surgeon by performing the procedures on Lakeview Regional Medical Center’s da Vinci® Si System. This advanced technology, using four robotic arms and a magnified 3D high-definition vision system, provides surgeons with unparalleled precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions. As an alternative to open surgery, the da Vinci® robot provides many benefits for the patient, including less pain, fewer side effects, minimal scarring, a reduced risk of infection, a shorter hospital stay, (usually about 24 hours), and a quicker return to normal daily activities.
