Three-dimensional vision surgery to treat obesity is a major revolution in patient safety and quality of image to the surgeon.

The 3D technique offers smaller incisions, less surgical time, less annoying and earlier postoperative recovery. The procedure lasts 45 minutes, the discharge occurs within 48 hours and return to everyday life in a week.

The camera that is introduced has a double lens, providing image depth and an almost identical vision of the human eye. The surgeon also needs special equipment: polarized glasses able to translate the screen images, like 3D cinema is involved.

3D surgery treats obesity and diabetes, preferably performing the technique called gastric sleeve, where it acts only in the stomach reducing its size.

Unlike bypass grafting techniques (intestinal shorts), where the patient suffers from malabsorption of vitamins, minerals, protein, iron and calcium for life, patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy not need extra contributions, because food will follow its usual channel. Nor they need extra vitamins management.

The benefits highlights a weight reduction to 80% in 10 months. After a first month with fluid intake, purees and crushed to accustom the stomach to its new size, you can lead a normal life and eat all kinds of food in small quantities because the stomach will not allow excessive amounts.

This type of surgery can also be used in patients in an advanced laparoscopic surgery, including surgery of gallbladder and biliary tract, hiatal hernia and stomach, colon and rectal tumors is indicated.
