West Bloomfield, MI (PRWEB) December 08, 2013
Michigan Minimally Invasive Surgeon, Dr. Scott Laker has released several informational pages regarding the most common types of hernias and their associated surgeries on the website for the Michigan Institute of Laparoscopic Surgery, his clinic for laparoscopic surgery. The Institute was created to be the most reputable laparoscopic hernia surgery center in the Metro-Detroit area. The articles are made for those who have a hernia and want to discover treatment options for their specific ailment.
Dr. Laker said about the new videos, “With the Metro-Detroit area being so active all the time, many people come into my clinic with many forms of hernias. I always love being able to tell them that we can fix it with minimal incisions and the fastest recovery times.”
Dr. Laker is a distinguished minimally invasive surgeon that has been serving the Metro-Detroit area for almost a decade, and has recently received praise as one of the Best Doctors in Michigan from Hour Detroit Magazine. His new clinic uses laparoscopic surgery for operations such as hernia surgery, reflux surgery, gall bladder surgery, reflux surgery, bariatric or weight loss surgery, and many other forms of gastrointestinal surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery is a relatively new surgical technique that is quickly becoming standard practice in today’s medicine. It utilizes a thin, long instrument known as a laparoscope to perform many forms of surgeries without the need for large incisions. Minimally invasive surgery greatly reduces the recovery time, the chance for infection, healing aesthetics, and the rehabilitation difficulty. Oftentimes, patients experience much less pain when compared to traditional surgery, reducing the risk for painkiller addiction and allowing patients to return to their 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.
