The da Vinci will help to ensure near-complete precision and consistently successful outcomes, says the Los Angeles area medical group.

The medical group provides weight loss care as well as help for people dealing with varicose veins and related matters.

No medical procedure has a 100% success rate, but the da Vinci X enables our surgical team to perform our duties at the highest standard of precision currently available.

Southern California-based weight loss center West Medical is proud to announce that it has become the first outpatient bariatric center in the United States to use the fourth-generation da Vinci X Surgical System in its practice. West Medical says that there are three components to the da Vinci X Surgical System, each designed to offer real-time, precision performance. The surgeon console enables the physicians to remotely control patient care functions with a clear view of the surgical site. Additionally, a vision cart seamlessly transmits data to the surgical team for optimal operating room efficiency. West Medical notes that the device is not autonomous, meaning that the surgeon remains in control of the machine at all times to provide further protection. The center says that it will make such already extremely safe and proven procedures as gastric sleeve surgeries even safer and more effective.

Lead surgeon Dr. Hooman Shabatian says, “We’re thrilled to be using the new da Vinci. As leaders in the weight loss surgery field, the West Medical team is always looking out for new ways to refine our approach to procedures so that procedures are successful and the risk of complications is minimized – and we have the track record to prove. With the da Vinci X system, though, we will come closer than ever to complete precision in all of our bariatric surgeries.”

The Los Angeles area bariatric surgeon adds. “No medical procedure has a 100% success rate, but the da Vinci X enables our surgical team to perform our duties at the highest standard of precision currently available,” says Dr. Shabatian. “Patients who come to us can feel secure that we’re doing everything possible to help ensure that they will achieve their weight loss goals and go on to a healthier and more satisfying life.”
