This video shows how to perform a sleeve gastrectomy in a morbidly obese patient with a BMI of 46. Surgery is performed entirely using a robot-assisted approach from beginning to end. The second generation of the three-armed Da Vinci S™ robot is used. The robotic arms are orientated so as to simulate laparoscopic maneuvers.
