Introduction

R&R Surgical Institute is one of only three Fellowship Council-approved programs in LA County that offers a fellowship in Bariatric Surgery & Advanced GI-MIS.

Description

The R&R Surgical Institute’s Bariatric & Advanced GI MIS Surgery Fellowship is a comprehensive one-year program focused on cultivating expertise in Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery. Trainees receive foundational training in Bariatric Surgery while honing technical skills in a range of laparoscopic procedures, including hiatal hernia repair, management of esophageal motility disorders, hernia surgeries, biliary procedures, and solid organ surgeries. As Los Angeles’s largest independent bariatric center, R&R boasts an extensive case variety and volume, along with the necessary infrastructure to nurture the development of future leaders in bariatric and minimally invasive surgery. The program primarily operates at R&R Surgical Institute, an MBSAQIP-accredited ambulatory surgery center (ASC) with a 23-hour stay capability. 

The program’s objective is to produce experts in Bariatric Surgery and Minimally Invasive Surgery, both clinically and technically. It encompasses inpatient rounds, outpatient clinics, weekly didactic sessions, clinical research, and other relevant educational activities. The primary focus of the technical training is on advanced laparoscopic skills. By the end of the fellowship, fellows are expected to master manual laparoscopic techniques, including advanced intracorporeal anastomosis, laparoscopic suturing, fine tissue handling, and advanced dexterity. They should be able to effectively incorporate these skills into their practice. While DaVinci robots are available at hospitals and fellows are encouraged to learn robotic skills, robotic surgery is not the main emphasis of the program. Participation in the call schedule also affords the fellow the chance to conduct common general surgical procedures. Fellows will experience a uniquely diverse range of cases, receiving personalized instruction and thorough clinical mentorship.

By the conclusion of the year, fellows will have gained the skills and knowledge required to independently perform a broad spectrum of Bariatric and Minimally Invasive surgical procedures.
