West Bloomfield, MI (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Michigan Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Scott Laker has opened a new office for the Michigan Institute of Laparoscopic Surgery, his clinic for laparoscopic surgery, along with a new website. The Institute was created to be the safest and most knowledgeable laparoscopic and weight loss center in the Metro-Detroit area. Patients can use the website to schedule appointments at the new office, make inquiries about treatments, or find out more information about the office and doctor.
Dr. Laker said about the new office, “I am very excited to have patients walking in the door, and being able to treat them with the latest technologies that laparoscopy has to offer at our new office. We have spent a long time prepping this office for the best possible care, and now I am happy to announce its opening.”
Dr. Laker is a very well-renowned surgeon that has been serving the Metro-Detroit area for almost a decade, and has recently received praise 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, gall bladder surgery, reflux surgery, hernia surgery, and many other forms of gastrointestinal surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery is a relatively novel surgical technique that is becoming a standard practice in medicine. It uses a thin, long instrument known as a laparoscope to perform many forms of surgeries without the need for large incisions. Smaller incisions greatly reduces the chance for infection, wound aesthetics, the length of recovery, and the course of rehabilitation. Oftentimes, patients experience much less pain and debilitation when compared to traditional surgery, reducing the need for addictive painkillers and allowing patients to return to life and work much sooner. One mainstream use of laparoscopic techniques is gastric bypass surgery, which reduces the effective size of the stomach and induces weight loss.
The Michigan Institute of Laparoscopic Surgery is centrally located in West Bloomfield, on West Maple Rd between Orchard Lake Rd. and Famington Rd. If you are interested in laparoscopic surgery or weight loss surgery, please visit MichiganSurgery.com or call MILS at 248-255-4380.
