    Minimally-Invasive Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery

    ASMBS Center of Excellence Bariatric Surgeon, Myur Srikanth, MD, FACS, has performed over 3,000 weight loss surgeries, with over 2,000 of those surgeries done laparoscopically (minimally-invasive). He performs virtually every operation that is currently available to treat this disease, including:

    Benefits of Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery

    Dr. Srikanth is one of the few bariatric surgeons in the Pacific Northwest who performs robotically-assisted surgeries. Benefits of minimally-invasive surgery include reduced trauma to the body, shorter recovery time, less chance of infection and less post-operative pain.

    In addition, the da Vinci® Surgical System allows the surgeon increased dexterity with 570 degree wrist rotation and 3D HD vision. This usually results in improved outcomes for patients and a faster return to normal activities.

    Firsts/Accomplishments

    Dr. Srikanth was among the first surgeons in the Puget Sound area to implant the Lap-BAND® on August 15, 2001 after FDA approval. His team has reported the best three-year percent excess weight loss (EWL) result (72%) with the Lap-BAND® device in the U.S. (Obes Surg 13 [2]: 275-280, Apr 2003). Dr. Srikanth was the first surgeon to perform the laparoscopic medial roux-en-y gastric bypass using the jejunal interposition technique—presented at the International Federation for Obesity Surgery (IFSO) meeting, Sydney, Australia, Sep 2006.

    Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery

    Due to inadequate skin elasticity, massive weight loss can result in surplus skin in the abdomen, breasts, inner thighs and arms. Dr. Srikanth specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries to remove excess skin and recontour the body after major weight loss, including:

    • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty, Abdominal Wall Reconstruction)
    • Lower Body Lift
    • Thigh Lift

    Non-Surgical Procedures for Facial Rejuvenation

    In addition, Dr. Srikanth has specialized training in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, including:
