Detroit, MI (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
Detroit Weight Loss Surgeon, Dr. Scott Laker has released several informational weight loss videos on the website for the Michigan Institute of Laparoscopic Surgery, his clinic for laparoscopic surgery. The Institute was created to be the the most reputable laparoscopic and weight loss center in the Metro-Detroit area. The videos are made for those who are considering weight loss surgery.
Dr. Laker said about the new videos, “Weight loss surgery is a major life decision, and these videos help people see what the procedure is like, and learn how safe and non-invasive weight loss surgery can be.”
Dr. Laker is a distinguished weight loss surgeon that has been serving the Metro-Detroit area for almost a decade, and has recently received accolades as one of Michigan’s Best Doctors from Hour Detroit Magazine. His new clinic uses laparoscopic surgery for operations such as bariatric or weight loss surgery, hernia surgery, reflux surgery, gall bladder surgery, reflux surgery, and many other forms of gastrointestinal surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery is a relatively new surgical technique that is quickly becoming standard practice in modern medicine. It utilizes a thin, long instrument known as a laparoscope to perform many forms of surgeries without the need for large incisions. Minimal incisions greatly reduces the length of recovery, the chance for infection, healing aesthetics, and the rehabilitation processes. Oftentimes, patients experience much less pain when compared to traditional surgery, reducing the risk for painkiller addiction and allowing patients to return to work and life sooner. One mainstream use of laparoscopic techniques is gastric bypass surgery, and is only available to people whose obesity could be life threatening, which Dr. Laker’s online BMI calculator helps one determine.
