The combination of increased articulation, dexterity, and 3D visualization allows us to safely perform operations with fewer incisions.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
K and B Surgical Center (http://www.kandbsurgicalcenter.com), a state-of-the-art medical facility with a variety of surgical specialties, announces its debut of outpatient (or same day) robotic weight loss surgery for current and prospective patients in Los Angeles and throughout the nation.
For decades, the standard of care was for a patient undergoing weight loss surgery to spend several days in the hospital. With the advent of minimally invasive surgical techniques, the length of stay has gradually become shorter and shorter. Currently, it is commonplace for patients to undergo weight loss surgery and go home the same day.
The next evolution of weight loss surgery involves the application of robotic assistance to reduce the number of incisions for various surgical procedures. Traditionally, this form of surgery was only available at a select group of large hospitals. However, there a few revolutionary outpatient surgery centers that now offer robotic surgery.
The Institute for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at K and B Surgical Center is the first and only stand-alone surgical center in Beverly Hills to utilize the da Vinci® Robotic Surgery System. This state-of-the art center has developed a robust and comprehensive robotic institute, which is pioneering cutting edge surgical techniques.
Dr. Gregg Kai Nishi, Director of Robotic Surgery, and his team are among the first in the country to perform robotic weight loss operations in an outpatient setting. Dr. Nishi states: “The combination of increased articulation, dexterity, and 3D visualization allows us to safely perform operations with fewer incisions. In addition, we have been able to apply robotic surgery to not only weight loss surgery, but also for operations on the colon, hernias and gallbladder as well. The possibilities are limitless.”
