This video shows the bariatric procedure of sleeve gastrectomy performed using a daVinci surgical robot. The patient had undergone gastric banding previously so the robot is useful in the dissection of a difficult hiatus, and also for suturing in a confined space. An experienced patient side assistant complements the procedure by performing the stapled resection of the greater curvature of the stomach. This video is suitable for bariatric surgeons.
