Robotic Sleeve Gastrectomy: Weight loss and metabolic treatment surgical options

This video, featuring bariatric surgeon Scott Shikora, MD, Director, Center for Metabolic Health and Bariatric Surgery, features the robotic sleeve gastrectomy technique to treat morbid obesity and its associated medical diseases. The surgery involves the removal of the outer crescent of the stomach, resulting in a much smaller stomach, shaped like a tube or sleeve. Using new robotic technologies has been shown to improve surgical procedures and outcomes for patients.
