We offer single incision laparoscopic techniques and are proficient in them. This not only helps the time patients spend during their actual bariatric surgery procedure in Houston or Cypress, but it allows a quicker recovery time than other, less advanced procedures. We use the SPIDER® surgical system to perform most single incision bariatric and general surgery procedures.

When you meet with any of the NHSA surgeons for a consultation about weight loss surgery in Houston or Cypress, TX, they will carefully consider what will help you attain the best possible outcome for you and your lifestyle. They will educate Houston and Cypress patients on post-bariatric surgery diet, after care and support groups as an aid to their chosen weight loss option.

THE SPIDER® SYSTEM

Our doctors are trained in the most advanced weight loss surgical procedures to date. The SPIDER® system is a flexible laparoscopic platform that allows multiple instruments to be used through a single incision. It allows a single surgeon to operate the device more naturally for true right and left instrument manipulation, making the procedure faster and more efficient. It can be used to perform a gastric sleeve, gastric band and some general surgery procedures. When you meet with your surgeon for your initial bariatric surgery consultation at our Houston or Cypress office, he may choose to use this method depending on what your specific needs and requirements are.

ROBOTIC-ASSISTED SURGERY

At Northwest Houston Surgical Association, we also use robotic-assisted surgery to perform gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy procedures. In robot-assisted surgery, surgeons conduct this procedure by inserting cameras through a small incision in the abdomen (minimally invasive surgery) using a robotic system. Robotic surgery allows surgeons to perform many complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than standard surgical techniques.
