Bariatric Surgery

Helping you, as you help patients take back their life

I have noticed a significant decrease in peak inspiratory airway pressure and mean airway pressure while using the AirSeal® system. These benefits are extremely important when taking care of obese patients who have increased airway resistance and decreased pulmonary compliance from baseline.

Robotic Surgeons: Get all the Benefits of AirSeal®

streamlined into your Intuitive da Vinci* procedure workflow - without the need for an assist port.

AirSeal® Robotic Solution

For my robotic-assisted roux-en-y gastric bypass, the 8mm AirSeal® access port allows for constant low pressure control and easy passage of suture.
