Robotic Assisted Biliary Pancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch

The third bariatric procedure being perfomed is robotic-assisted biliary pancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS). Three surgeons are currently using the robot for this procedure, Drs. Ranjan and Debra Sudan from Creighton Hospital in Omaha, and Dr. Gagner from Mount Sinai in New York [4]. Most reports describe performing the duodenojejunal anastomosis with robotic-assistance. No comparative data have been reported. However, the stated advantages are the system's ability to complete an otherwise diffi cult and advanced laparoscopic maneuver with greater ease and more precision, with no untoward effects.
