SPIDER Weight Loss Surgery

Los Angeles, Irvine, and Riverside, California

Deciding to have weight loss surgery may be one of the most important health decisions you ever make, so understandably, you want to be sure choose a bariatric surgeon with experience using top-of-the line equipment. Using the latest in laparoscopic surgery technology can make bariatric surgery safer and reduce recovery time so that you can start your new life sooner.

Laparoscopic bariatric surgeon Dr. Shyam Dahiya is one of a select group of surgeons qualified to use the SPIDER® Surgical System, which allows laparoscopic bariatric surgery to be done with a single incision (SILS).

The SPIDER® Surgical System – An Innovation for Safer Surgery

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and possible complications with weight loss surgery. Because we care about your health and safety, we now use the SPIDER® Surgical System to help reduce those risks. The SPIDER® system is a flexible platform for laparoscopic surgery that enables Dr. Dahiya to perform several types of bariatric surgery through a single, small incision. While the risk of complications such as infection or hernia is already very low, we have adopted the SPIDER® system as an added protective measure.

If you’re curious about how SPIDER® weight loss surgery works or have other questions about laparoscopic SPIDER® surgery, feel free contact us and schedule a bariatric surgery consultation with Dr. Dahiya.

Dr. Dahiya is one of relatively few bariatric surgeons fully trained and qualified to use the SPIDER® system. In fact, Dr. Dahiya performed the world’s first and only laparoscopic removal of a large liver cyst using the SPIDER® system. With this single-incision platform, Dr. Dahiya is already able to safely perform:

  • Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery
  • LAP-BAND® Weight Loss Surgery
  • REALIZE® Band Weight Loss Surgery

Soon, the SPIDER® system will also help Dr. Dahiya perform other weight loss surgeries, such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.
