Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgeries come with a special set of challenges. Baxter's haemostat, sealant and tissue repair products have the strength needed to address leakage, bleeding and access issues in bariatric procedures. Safer surgery and less time in the operating room means quicker recovery for each patient.


Key Procedures

Each bariatric procedure provides unique challenges that can cause complications for the healing process. Here are just a few examples.

Duodenal Switch

Duodenal switch procedures can often result in more complications than other bariatric surgeries. FLOSEAL, Baxter's flowable hemostat, can be trusted to stop many types of bleeding3.
