Presbyterian/St. Luke’s is committed to offering innovative, state-of-the-art bariatric treatments. We offer the most advanced bariatric surgeries including vertical sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass and revisional bariatric procedures with the assistance of the da Vinci® surgical system.
This robotic platform allows surgeons to perform complex bariatric surgeries through small incisions while increasing the surgeon’s vision, precision, dexterity and control.
This new technology helps to decrease postoperative pain and recovery times.
