Largo Medical introduces single incision adjustable gastric band procedure

LARGO – Largo Medical Center recently announced the first single incision bariatric/surgical weight loss adjustable gastric band in the state of Florida.

This type of minimally invasive surgery is often the preferred method of treatment when available. The hospital’s robotic surgical system works in 3D high-definition with special instruments for the wrist that bend and rotate giving the surgeon a greater range of motion than the human wrist. This enables surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

“With obesity numbers continuing to be on the rise, I am pleased that we can offer shorter hospital stays that assist in the process of getting people on the road to a faster recovery with less scarring,” said Ache in a press release. “And since there is no cutting or stapling involved in this procedure, it is the least traumatic of all the weight loss surgeries available for our patients today.”

The gastric band is an adjustable surgical treatment that fastens around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a smaller stomach pouch, giving patients an earlier sensation of feeling full after a meal.

“It is advancements in technology as well as the clinical expertise that our staff and physicians provide that continue to keep Largo Medical Center top-of-mind when it comes to providing compassionate care and outstanding service with exceptional outcomes,” said Anthony Degina, chief executive officer at Largo Medical Center.

Largo Medical Center’s and Pinellas County’s first bariatric/surgical weight loss robotic procedure was the surgical sleeve gastrectomy in November 2013.
