How Do Doctors Staple/sew?



Recommended Posts

Even though I am not going to a local surgeon i attended one of the free seminars. The doctor explained that he used staples AND he over-sewed the staples. Does anyone know if the doctors in Mexico do this as well?

Seems that each surgeon does things differently... I went to Dr. Ortiz and honestly.. I'm not sure what all he did but my 3 tiny incisions were surgi-glued shut and completely healed within about 10 days. They are barely noticeable and I didn't have to any stitches taken our or anything.... My entire experience was amazing!!

Good Luck!

sorry, i should have been clear. on the stomach he does staple & sew. He didn't elaborate on the exterior. I assumed the glue or staples since the incision holes are small. but that is just an assumption

Does Kelly glue exterior? I like the idea of not having to see a doctor when i return.

Dr. Alvarez also does staples and oversews the cut part of the stomach. If you are not too sqeamish there are actually lots of videos on YouTube showing doctors performing the procedure.

My surgery is with Dr. Ortiz in September. And I asked that question a few months ago and was told that he staples and oversews ... they say it helps prevent the stomach from stretching out too much... plus makes it more secure in regards to leaks.

dr. Ponce de leon also staples and then sews. They actually use a tool that cauterizes the tissue and puts staples in at the same time and then go back and sew over it.
