Advanced Robotic Surgery Technology
da Vinci® XI Surgical System
The da Vinci® robot features multiple arms that are capable of performing maneuvers and rotations beyond the natural ability of the human hand. At all times, these arms are controlled by the surgeon who sits just a few feet away at the control center. A high-definition camera relays a live video feed of the operative area back to the surgeon in 3-D.
Using the da Vinci Surgical System can reduce surgeon fatigue while enhancing the doctor’s vision, precision, and control. At no point in the procedure does the robot ever make decisions or act independently of the surgeon. Your surgeon remains in complete control from the very beginning to the very end of your robot-assisted procedure.

What To Expect On Your Surgery Day
Featured Bariatric Procedures
At Bariatrics Health Mexico in Puerto Vallarta, our bariatric surgeons offer
multiple forms of weight loss surgery to fit your needs, including:
Gastric sleeve is the most common procedure performed at our practice. The procedure involves removing a portion of your stomach and creating a smaller stomach pouch, meaning it is not reversible. This smaller stomach holds less food, which means you feel full on smaller portions. Lower caloric consumption leads to weight loss. This surgery is often performed laparoscopically for faster recovery times.
A gastric bypass is performed by creating a smaller stomach section and rerouting the stomach to the small intestines. The smaller stomach pouch means fewer calories can be consumed. Rerouting the intestine allows for even fewer calories to be absorbed into the body, leading to greater weight loss. This can also be performed laparoscopically.
Like gastric bypass, a smaller pouch is created during duodenal switch surgery. The main difference is that during a duodenal switch surgery, much of the small intestine is rerouted. This allows for even fewer calories to be absorbed. Fewer calories consumed combined with fewer calories absorbed lead to increased weight loss.
Bariatric revision surgery is performed to correct a previous surgery or to revise the previous surgery from one type to another. Patients with gastric bands often come to us to have their bands removed and undergo a gastric bypass, duodenal switch, or gastric sleeve. Bariatric revision is a great option for patients who had complications with previous surgery or who didn't obtain their desired results.

Is Bariatric Surgery Right for Me? Factors That Impact Patients' Candidacy
During your initial consultation with one of our bariatric surgeons, you will discuss your health history and weight loss goals to determine if bariatric surgery is right for you, as well as which type of surgery is best. You may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if:
- You have tried traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise without results.
- You have a BMI over 30.
Benefits of Bariatric Surgery
Patients who lose weight following bariatric surgery lower their risks of health complications such as diabetes and cardiovascular issues. Some conditions such as type 2 diabetes can even go into remission following weight loss.
Patients who are overweight are at an increased risk of sleep apnea, which can disrupt their sleep. By losing weight, many patients experience a better quality of sleep, and some even report not needing their CPAP device.
Obesity can put added stress on the joints and cause pain. By losing weight, patients report significant pain relief.
Obesity can cause issues with fertility. By losing weight with bariatric surgery, patients can experience improved fertility.
Obesity can cause many people to have a poor body image. Losing weight has been shown to improve emotional health and boost self-confidence.
