Women’s Excellence in Oakland County, MI Now Providing Minimally Invasive Surgery Options with 3 mm Laparoscope; Smaller Incisions and Reduced Recovery Time

Share Article

Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, founder and physician of Women’s Excellence in Lake Orion and Clarkston, Michigan, is the first surgeon in Michigan to use 3 mm laparoscopic instruments to perform select minimally invasive gynecological procedures. Dr. Zaidan is one of a handful of surgeons in the United States to use this new line of instruments from Karl Storz.

Karl Storz recently trained a select group of veteran laparoscopic surgeons in the United States using their newest technology consisting of 3 mm laparoscopic instruments. Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, founder and highly experienced laparoscopic surgeon of Women’s Excellence based out of Lake Orion, Michigan, became the first gynecological surgeon in the State of Michigan to do a procedure with this improved technology that makes minimally invasive surgery even more minimally invasive.

When asked about what makes the new technology different than its predecessors, Dr. Zaidan replied, “The new 3 mm technology has all the advantages of the previous technology consisting of the 5 mm instruments but now the incisions are so small that we close them with a piece of tape. No suture is required to close the incisions.” The new technology has been approved for a variety of select gynecological surgical procedures including diagnostic laparoscopy, oopherectomy (removal of an ovary), lysis of adhesions, myomectomy (removal of uterine fibroids), and hysterectomy. Dr. Zaidan is already using the instruments at McLaren in Pontiac and is planning on trialing the instruments soon at Bald Mountain Surgical Center in Lake Orion.

“When you are delivering healthcare to women, smaller incisions and decreased recovery times equate to happier patients. We are so happy to be one of the 1st practices in Michigan to be able to provide this latest breakthrough in technology to our patients,” stated Dr. Zaidan. Since 1945, Karl Storz has established itself worldwide as an international and highly regarded company in the production of medical instruments.
