Laparoscopy surgical technique is increasingly used in weight loss and obesity treatment procedures such as bariatric surgery. Laparoscopy is one of the most advanced approaches to surgery that has transformed the way many types of surgeries are performed today. The technique must be used only by an experienced bariatric surgeon with expertise in laparoscopy.
Dr. Wiljon W. Beltre is a well-known surgeon for weight loss, obesity, and other related procedures. Dr. Beltre will adopt the laparoscopy technique wherever it is the most suitable option in the patient’s best interests. He is board certified in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Beltre’s practice receives patients from Orlando, Tampa, Altamonte Springs, Central Florida, and surrounding communities.
What is Laparoscopy?
Laparoscopy is a surgical technique that involves the use of a lighted viewing instrument called a laparoscope. This instrument may be inserted into the lower abdominal area through a minor incision made underneath the navel. The surgeon will inflate the abdomen with gas that is injected through a needle. This will separate the abdominal wall from the organs to allow the surgeon to view them more clearly and perform more accurate procedures.
Laparoscopy technique may be applied for both diagnosis and treatment. Incisions can be placed in such a way that the same incision can be used to insert another surgical device or laser to treat the condition. The technique can be employed in bariatric surgery and other related procedures for greater precision. As an experienced bariatric surgeon, Dr. Beltre uses this technique for suitable candidates in Orlando, Tampa, Altamonte Springs, Central Florida, and other areas.
The key advantage with laparoscopy technique is that it allows the surgeon to perform the procedure in a more conservative and less invasive manner. Larger incisions that are typically used in invasive open surgeries can be avoided. Risk gets reduced, recovery period is shorter, and scars will be relatively smaller with laparoscopic technique.
In case of Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery, the risk of hernia development is also reduced. This technique allows for better protection of the patient’s immune function as compared to open surgery that can compromise the immune function. However, to achieve successful outcomes with a high precision procedure such as laparoscopic surgery, it is important to choose the appropriate surgeon with specialized training and experience in this technique.
Laparoscopic Gastric Banding
Laparoscopic gastric banding procedure is designed to help with weight loss. The procedure involves the placement of a surgical band around the upper area of the abdomen to create a small pouch that will hold food. The band will control the amount of food the patient can eat because it will make them feel full after eating only smaller quantities of food.
Following the surgery, the surgeon can adjust the band to allow the food to pass more quickly or slowly through the stomach. Laparoscope can be used in this surgery to enable the surgeon to see inside the belly through a camera, rather than opting for larger incisions to perform an open surgery.
