This video demonstrates robotic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) with transit bipartition (TB) for an obese patient with complicated metabolic syndrome. 49-year-old male with pmhx of DM, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia was referred to the clinic (BMI:34.5 kg/m2). Procedure combines typical SG with TB; this creates a shortcut to the ileum while maintaining access to the duodenum. A typical SG was performed. After SG, intracorporeal latero-lateral gastroileal anastomosis was created. As a conclusion, robotic SG and TB is technically safe and feasible, provides superior visualization and ability to perform precise intracorporeal suturing in reconstructing the anatomy for metabolic surgery.
