Special Issue Introduction

Welcome to the 7th Anniversary Series Special Issue of the Journal of Mini-invasive Surgery. Over the past seven years, our journal has been dedicated to advancing the field of minimally invasive surgery, providing a platform for sharing cutting-edge research, innovative techniques, and best practices. This Special Issue celebrates our anniversary by focusing on the rapidly evolving field of bariatric surgery, highlighting the latest minimally invasive techniques that are transforming patient care.

Bariatric surgery has become a cornerstone in the treatment of severe obesity, offering significant and sustainable weight loss and improvements in obesity-related comorbidities. The shift towards minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopic and robotic-assisted procedures, has further enhanced the efficacy and safety of bariatric surgery.

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in minimally invasive bariatric surgery. We have curated a selection of original research articles, review papers, and clinical studies from leading experts in the field, highlighting emerging techniques and their clinical applications.

Topics covered include but are not limited to:

1. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy: Innovations and outcomes in one of the most commonly performed bariatric procedures;

2. Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass: Advances in techniques and long-term results;

3. Robotic-Assisted Bariatric Surgery: The role of robotic systems in enhancing precision and patient outcomes;

4. One Anastomosis Bypass: Comparative studies and clinical applications of this simplified procedure;

5. Single Anastomosis Duodeno-Ileostomy;

6. Endoscopic Bariatric Interventions: Emerging non-surgical options for weight loss and their effectiveness;

7. Revisional Minimally Invasive Bariatric Surgery: Approaches to managing weight regain and complications from previous bariatric surgeries;

8. Outcomes of Minimally Invasive Bariatric Procedures: Comprehensive reviews and meta-analyses of current data;

9. Complications of Minimally Invasive Bariatric Procedures.

We hope that this Special Issue will serve as a valuable resource for bariatric surgeons, gastroenterologists, obesity specialists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with obesity. By exploring the latest advances and evidence-based practices in minimally invasive bariatric surgery, we aim to improve patient outcomes, refine surgical techniques, and advance the field towards a safer, more effective, and personalized approach to obesity treatment.
