Dr. Richards completes more than 20 cases using Titan SGS®

Standard Bariatrics welcomes Alabama-based bariatric surgeon William O. Richards, MD, FACS, Professor and Chair University of South Alabama College of Medicine, Department of Surgery, and Immediate Past President of Southeastern Surgical Congress, to the community of Titan SGS® users. He has completed over 20 gastric sleeve cases using Titan SGS.

“The Titan stapler is a fundamental and substantial improvement for patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. The surgeon is able to create one single staple line that creates a more symmetric sleeve, with better compression, which reduces bleeding along the staple line, reduces leaks, and improves postoperative outcomes,” he said.
