Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgery
Minimally invasive surgeries allow patients to undergo much-needed surgical procedures, with many benefits.
Using the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System allows our surgeons to perform bariatric surgery with minimal pain and downtime.
Learn how Dr. Sergio Del Hoyo and Dr. Christian Ramirez in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico perform this advanced robotic surgery.
What is the Da Vinci Xi?
The da Vinci is a robotic surgical instrument that allows your surgeon to perform minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci's four arms are capable of precise movements, with more precision than the human hand alone is capable of.
Many patients assume this medical device is a robot. While it is considered a robotic system, the da Vinci is not a robot. This surgical system requires a skilled surgeon to operate, and remains in the surgeon's control during the entire procedure.
Benefits of Da Vinci Xi
Using this advanced system, your surgeons only need to make tiny incisions. These smaller incisions mean faster healing times, less pain, and smaller scars.
Patients who undergo minimally invasive surgical procedures using the da Vinci heal faster than traditional bariatric surgery. This means less recovery and downtime.
The da Vinci Xi system is performed laparoscopically with ultra-precision and a smaller surgical site. This means less bleeding and less tissue disruption during the surgery.
This surgical system allows your surgeon to see beyond what the naked eye can see. 3D resolution of the Xi system gives your surgeon a better view of the surgical field, for better patient outcomes.
Performed Using Da Vinci XI
This surgical procedure involves creating a smaller stomach pouch and rerouting the small intestine to change the way your body absorbs and digests food.
During this bariatric procedure, your surgeon will remove a portion of your stomach to create a smaller stomach pouch, reducing how much food you can ingest.
Our surgeons in Mexico can perform minimally invasive bariatric revision surgery using the da Vinci medical device to help you correct issues or help where a previous surgery failed.
