Weight-Loss Surgery Options
Struggling with a medical condition is never easy. But when you work with a compassionate team of people who understand your condition and are committed to helping you get well, it starts to get easier.
At Clovis Community Weight-Loss Surgery Center, we work with you to explore weight-loss surgery options that will help you regain control of your life.
Weight-Loss Surgeries We Offer
Weight-loss surgery, also called metabolic and bariatric surgery, can help correct health problems associated with obesity. The weight-loss surgeries we offer include
roux-en-y gastric bypass
Weight-Loss Surgery Using Robotic Technology
Community Medical Centers offers weight-loss surgery using the
da Vinci Surgical System®
— a minimally invasive robotic technology that's an alternative to traditional open surgery (through one large incision) and conventional laparoscopy.
This advanced surgical platform uses a minimally invasive technique combined with enhanced vision, accuracy, dexterity and precision compared to traditional approaches.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
When compared with other types of surgery, robotic surgery patients have fewer complications, and less pain, scarring, blood loss, need for narcotic pain medication and shorter hospital stays. These benefits help patients return to their normal, daily activities faster.
Not every patient is a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery. Check with your doctor to find out if da Vinci surgery is right for you.
