da Vinci Robot-Assisted Bariatric Surgery - A New Way to a New You
Imagine your diabetes – cured; your sleep apnea – cured; your high blood pressure – cured. Imagine riding a bicycle, taking long walks, tying your shoes and enjoying activities that you once took for granted. If you're struggling with obesity, it can be hard to imagine your life differently. But with weight loss surgery procedures including gastric bypass surgery and sleeve surgery, change is possible.
And now, Dr. Jonathan Aranow is offering patients an even more advanced way to change their lives for the better: da Vinci® Robot-Assisted Gastric Bypass Surgery. This minimally invasive technique provides all of the benefits of traditional weightloss surgery, but with smaller incisions, faster recovery times and shorter stays in the hospital.
At the Center for Weight Loss Surgery at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut, we understand what you're going through. We have earned the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) designation as an accredited center for our demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes following thousands of bariatric surgery procedures. It's a designation we are very proud of, and one you can take comforting in knowing about us.
First Steps to Weight Loss Surgery
Weight loss surgery is an appropriate alternative for patients who have tried all conservative measures to control their weight and have failed. At the Center for Weight Loss Surgery located in Middletown Connecticut, we know that we can treat patients successfully, reduce the risk and severity of their problems, and improve their quality of life.
The prospect of having a surgery to solve your weight problem is a big step, but it takes a big step to solve a big problem. It is only after all other reasonable measures at weight reduction have failed that weight loss surgery options like gastric bypass and Lapband ™ surgery should be considered.
Bariatric surgery is intended only for those diagnosed with clinically severe or morbid obesity, and may not be right for everyone. But through a comprehensive evaluation of your history and your health, we can help you determine if weight loss surgery is the best option for you.
