Minimally invasive surgery, often labeled laparoscopic surgery, is performed through modestly sized surgical incisions. The small incisions often require less stitches and thus, a decline in a patient’s bodily stress. With a lessened opportunity for pain management, blood loss, and scarring, a patient can stand to benefit from and experience a shorter hospital stay after their weight loss surgery.
Bariatric surgery refers to the differing surgical procedures performed to treat obesity. The surgical procedure reduces nutrient intake and/or absorption.
Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery, and weight loss surgery in general, encourages attaining a healthy body weight. Studies have shown that patients who have weight loss surgery can have substantial improvements in obesity related health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
Minimally Invasive techniques during obesity surgery can also help cut down on the time spent in the hospital and lead to less pain during recovery.
