SPIDER® Surgical System
For bariatric patients who are concerned about how invasive their surgery might be, they can take heart in knowing there are surgical systems that are minimally invasive, but offer the same results as past bariatric surgical tools.
At the Los Angeles, California bariatric surgical practice of Dr. Carson Liu™, the SPIDER® Surgical System gives both doctor and patients the satisfaction of knowing that minimally invasive techniques can greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to heal so that you can get on the road to recovery more quickly.

How the SPIDER System Works
The SPIDER system is different than traditional laparoscopic surgical tools in that it is flexible and allows multiple instruments to be used through only one incision. This is done with articulating instrument delivery tubes that allow Dr. Liu to triangulate the instrument more easily during your surgery.
During your bariatric surgery:
- The SPIDER surgical device is inserted through an incision in your navel
- It is then expanded like an umbrella so that Dr. Liu may use a variety of tools to help him perform the surgery. A camera attached to the device allows Dr. Liu to see what he is doing
- Once the surgery is completed, SPIDER is then collapsed and removed through the original incision in your navel
The result is a nearly invisible scar made through only one incision. Your recovery will be more rapid since your body doesn't have to contend with healing many incisions at once. Traditional laparoscopic surgeries require multiple incisions. However, the SPIDER system requires only one, although certain patients may require more than one.
Dr. Carson Liu understands that many weight loss patients are desperate to lose weight so they can lead healthy and productive lives. He also knows that you don't want to spend months recovering so you can get on with living your new life.
This is why SPIDER Surgical System is such an important instrument for Dr. Liu to use. By helping you to achieve your weight loss goals with an instrument that limits the amount of time needed to heal, Dr. Liu will get you on the fast track toward a new day.
