Important Information for Patients:
All surgery presents risk, including da Vinci Surgery. Results, including cosmetic results, may vary. Serious complications may occur in any surgery, up to and including death. Examples of serious and life-threatening complications, which may require hospitalization, include injury to tissues or organs; bleeding; infection, and internal scarring that can cause long-lasting dysfunction or pain. Temporary pain or nerve injury has been linked to the inverted position often used during abdominal and pelvic surgery. Patients should understand that risks of surgery include potential for human error and potential for equipment failure. Risks specific to minimally invasive surgery may include: a longer operative time; the need to convert the procedure to other surgical techniques; the need for additional or larger incision sites; a longer operation or longer time under anesthesia than your surgeon originally predicts. Converting the procedure to open could mean a longer operative time, long time under anesthesia, and could lead to increased complications. Research suggests that there may be an increased risk of incision-site hernia with single-incision surgery. Patients who bleed easily, have abnormal blood clotting, are pregnant or morbidly obese are typically not candidates for minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Surgery. Other surgical approaches are available. Patients should review the risks associated with all surgical approaches. They should talk to their doctors about their surgical experience and to decide if da Vinci is right for them.

Band to Gastric Sleeve Revision in Dallas
This surgical option is used to alter or repair a preexisting operation. The procedure is ideal for patients who have already undergone bariatric surgery and have either had complications or have not successfully achieved significant weight loss results from the initial surgery.Read more >
With the duodenal switch surgery, 70 percent of the stomach is removed to restrict the amount of food you can eat. A portion of the small intestine is then rerouted to make two separate pathways that minimize the calories you are able to absorb – resulting in long-term weight loss.Read more >
The Adjustable Gastric Banding System is designed to decrease food intake by inserting a small band around the top of the stomach to restrict the size of the opening of the upper part of the stomach. The surgeon can then control the size of the opening with a circular balloon inside the band.Read more >
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is designed to reduce the amount of food you are able to eat. It is a permanent procedure that changes the structure of the stomach, helping patients achieve and maintain their weight loss goal.Read more >
Bariatric patients now have another option for weight loss surgery called gastric sleeve or sleeve gastrectomy. The procedure reduces the size of the stomach by converting the stomach into a narrow tube. The new stomach is much smaller and produces less of the hormone (ghrelin) that causes hunger.Read more >
