About Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery
Lourdes offers several types of metabolic and bariatric surgery, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding (Lap-Band®) and possible surgical revisions of previous bariatric surgery. These procedures are performed using a minimally invasive Robotic-assisted laparoscopic approach, in which operations in the abdomen are performed via small incisions with advanced technology. This provides the surgeon 3D vision and instrumentation designed to simulate the range of motion of a human wrist.
