Special Instruments Used in the Surgery

The Stapler
The most important instrument in laparoscopic gastric surgery is the stapler, which is used as a suturing device to separate the stomach. In addition to the tightness of the stiches at the staple line, bleeding is the most common complication in bariatric surgery. Our partner surgeon uses the stapler only once per patient to minimize this risk

The Suture Enhancer
Our partner surgeon is on the use of the suture enhancement. This consist of a biological material and serve as an additional layer of tissue to ensure that the brackets are better anchored, thereby reducing postoperative complications. There is 100% consensus between specialists in the bariatric field about that by using the suture enhancer there is a significantly minimized risk of bleeding.
