   Surgical System Certified

   SEBASTIAN, Fla., Dec. 4, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) --
   Riverside Surgical and Weight Loss Center is now offering robotically-
   assisted minimally invasive surgery as a weight loss surgery option.
   The addition of this technology to the practice makes Riverside
   Surgical and Weight Loss Center one of only a handful of bariatric
   surgical centers in Florida using the most advanced techniques to
   perform bariatric surgery.

   The robotically-assisted minimally invasive method, the da Vinci
   Surgical System, works as an extension of the surgeon, translating the
   surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements. This offer
   high-resolution, 3D visibility and improved accuracy. It's an
   improvement from traditional and laparoscopic weight loss surgeries.
   These benefits are translated to the patients as a quicker recovery and
   improved cosmesis.

   Like conventional laparoscopy, the da Vinci Surgical System allows surgeons to operate through just a few tiny (5mm)
   incisions, but da Vinci offers benefits that conventional laparoscopy does not. With conventional laparoscopy, the instruments
   are rigid and have limited movement, however with robotically-assisted instruments are wristed and move in all directions with
   90 degrees of freedom.

   Patients who have their surgery done with da Vinci also experience shorter hospital stay, less pain, lower risk of infection, less
   blood loss, less scarring, faster recovery and a quicker return to normal daily activities. Benefits like these are prompting
   surgeons to become certified in robotically-assisted minimally invasive bariatric surgery so that they can better help their
   patients lose weight and heal quickly.

   Dr. Patrick Domkowski, Medical Director at Riverside Surgical and Weight Loss Center, became da Vinci certified in order to
   offer his patients an effective alternative to traditional open and laparoscopic surgeries. "The enhancements this system offers
   to both patient and doctor made becoming certified in this system a natural choice for Riverside," he said. "We're constantly
   striving to offer our patients a safe and exceptional surgical experience that will lead them to successful weight loss and
   improved health. That often means going through the necessary training to learn about new and improved technologies."

   Dr. Jason Radecke, a fellowship trained bariatric surgeon and partner of Riverside Surgical and Weight Loss Center agrees,
   "We are always moving forward to offer our patients the safest and most advanced technologies to help people reach their
   goals with respect to weight and health."

   The center also offers other advanced weight loss surgery options, such as the STARR treatment surgical system - which
   allows bariatric surgery to be performed through one, tiny incision.
