Created medical treatment-superiority skills
Laparoscopic bariatric surgery
The laparoscopic vertical banded gastrplasty surgery (LVBG) was successfully invented in October, 1998. LVBG was the first laparoscopic bariatric surgery and original invention from Asia. Because of the effective achievements, the streams of patients are coming along by the attraction of its reputation. After that, the new generation of laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery (LGB) had been completed in December, 2000. And the laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery (LAGB) had also passed clinical trails and got the approval from the department of health. By the year of 2005, the first case of Bioenterics intragastric balloon (BIB) had been worked out sufficiently in Taiwan. The BIB could be put in through panendoscope, with no operation, the effects went as well.
The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery is the new bariatric surgery develops since 2006. It is a preferred choice for oriental in particular.
Our team has accumulated over 2,600 endoscopic surgery cases. The safety guaranteed is up to 99.5% and the proportion of success is 95%. Recently, we provide further impetus for non-scar surgery. We put all the wounds around the umbilical (Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery, SILS). We do the abdominal surgery with new facilities and improved skills. The cuts are gathered inside the umbilical. Which brings about the non-scar appearance after the surgery? The new conception has been used in gastric cancer surgery, gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy surgery and even diabetes mellitus.
The exclusive skill now has been discussed enthusiastically by the international scholars and doctors. Some of the doctors from Japan and Korea are applying for the observation chances.
Except for the laparoscopic bariatric surgery, Professor Wei-Jei Lee and his team workers are making innovation with the progress of developing the skills of laparoscopic surgery. Most of the skills were started in Taiwan here. In that case, we have acuminated numerous examples which are on top of our country. We like to share the experiences with you here.
