Laparoscopic implantation of gastric stimulator

This is a video of a laparoscopic implantation of a gastric electrical stimulator in a 13 year old girl with severe gastroparesis and functional dyspepsia. She had a temporary trial performed the week before that was successful in improving her symptoms, and therefore we proceeded with a permanent implantation. She has done well and has been able to eat food again after over a year of just liquids and has not been admitted to the hospital since surgery.
