This panel is a session of high end robotic bariatric surgeons who are discussing the intricacies of complex procedures. The panelist will present solutions to manage these procedures and open discussion will then ensue to learn technical approaches for success in addressing bariatric patients with robotic assistance.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the technical approaches of managing robotic duodenal switch and SADI from creation to revision and conversion.
  2. Learn the technical options of robotic gastric bypass including management and procedure steps and revisions.
  3. Be able to discuss the challenges of complex revisions and conversions in robotic bariatric surgery.
  4. Understand the use of robotic tools including robotic staplers and the potential advantages and disadvantages of these tools.
