Laproscopic Weight Loss Surgery

Laparoscopic operations are performed through several small incisions with the aide of a fiberoptic video camera and special instruments which can reduce the trauma and discomfort associated with a long open incision. Hospitalization, post-op pain, and recovery time is usually reduced compared to traditional surgery. Laparoscopic surgical obesity treatment operations have only been performed since 1993. Therefore the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons recommends choosing a surgeon who is experienced in both laparoscopic and open bariatric operations, and who understands the complexities of surgical treatment of obesity.
