Top Bariatric Surgeon Dr. Maher El Chaar Leads the Way for Weight Loss Surgeries Using Robotics

More than two-thirds of the US population is actually considered overweight. Author of the book “Dr. E’s Guide to Weight Loss Surgery...the Weight is Over”, Dr. Maher El Chaar is no stranger to the data presented above as he has, in fact, spent several years leading the field of bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery by using robotics to address the obesity pandemic and improve patient outcomes.

Bariatric surgery is referred to as “weight loss” surgery, and it focuses on altering the anatomy of the stomach and the rest of the gastrointestinal tract to induce weight loss. “The positive effects of bariatric surgery, however, go far above and beyond weight loss” said Dr. El Chaar. According to Dr. El Chaar, bariatric surgery can cure diabetes, and that’s why now bariatric surgery is referred to as metabolic surgery.  

Dr. Maher El Chaar serves as the Fellowship Director of bariatric surgery at St. Luke’s University Hospital in Pennsylvania. Throughout his medical career, he has produced more than 200 peer-reviewed manuscripts, book chapters, abstracts, and educational videos on bariatric surgery. Recently, he was named as one of the Top Surgeons in “Guide to America’s Top Surgeons.” Currently, Dr. Maher El Chaar is focusing on the utilization of robotics in performing bariatric surgery in order to improve patient outcomes. “Robotics is a new and exciting innovative approach to the performance of bariatric surgery that results in better outcomes and less postoperative pain, and I am happy that our center is playing a lead role in the advancement of that new technology” said Dr. El Chaar.

Fueled by his passion for educating people on weight loss surgery and how to achieve a healthy lifestyle, in general, he has taken his medical expertise and professional opinion to the world of social media. His Instagram and Facebook posts do not only provide information about robotics, bariatric, or weight loss surgery but also touches on other relevant issues like how to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.

One of the visions of Dr. Maher El Chaar is to revolutionize the practice of bariatric surgery with the use of robotics, and for that purpose, he has focused not only on educating other surgeons and providers on the benefits of robotic surgery but also educating the patients and the public at large about the advantages of that new technology. 

With that in mind, this bariatric surgery expert seeks to incorporate robotics in the study and practice of bariatric surgery with the hopes of improving the outcomes of surgical patients. He is well-aware of the benefits of utilizing robots in surgical procedures, but as an academic surgeon, he has taken the right steps to study this new development thoroughly in a rigorous scientific manner in order to ensure long-lasting robotics success in the field of bariatric surgery.
