Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
A fantastic new surgical system is available today to bariatric surgeons called the SPIDER. At L.A. Bariatrics in Beverly Hills bariatric patients can now chose to undergo weight loss surgery with even fewer scars.
When a bariatric surgeon uses SPIDER to perform the bariatric procedure it is called the STARR Treatment. STARR stands for surgical tiny access and rapid recovery.
Even though traditional weight loss procedures performed with a laparoscope are minimally invasive they still require a few incisions on the abdomen, incisions which are painful after the surgery. The SPIDER instead of several small incisions on the abdomen uses one small incision on the belly button. This way the scar is not that visible, and being a single incision causes less pain.
”The SPIDER is in fact a laparoscopic platform. – says Dr. Korman, the medical director of L.A. Bariatrics. This tool makes possible the STARR treatment. Given its flexibility gives us surgeons enhanced dexterity.”
L.A. Bariatrics’ newest addition to staff members, bariatric surgeon Mona Misra has been using this system for a year now with great outcomes. Weight loss patients on which she performed the surgery recovered faster, they had to endure less pain and at last but not least the aesthetic result of the surgery was desirable.
Marina Hospital’s weight loss program continues to adopt the newest innovations in minimally invasive surgery pursuing the mission they started: to help people walk away from morbid obesity the best way possible.
