Dr. Adam Smith Chosen to Help Introduce No-Scar Surgical Weight-Loss Innovations

FORT WORTH, Texas, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Industry-leading and renowned laparoscopic bariatric surgeon Dr. Adam Smith, of Fort Worth LAP-BAND(R), was recently selected by medical device manufacturers to introduce a new, no-scar surgical weight-loss option to the Tarrant County Region.

Dr. Smith continues to lead the way by performing the single incision bariatric procedures, known as SILS (Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery), at Specialty Surgery Center of Fort Worth.

"We take great pride in helping to introduce such promising surgical innovations," offered Geoff Wayne, COO at AIGB.

"With a surgeon possessing Dr. Smith's extensive experience and outstanding reputation ushering in this age of exciting, new patient options, we continue to move forward as leaders, and do so with the greatest of confidence."

The procedure's recent Tarrant County debut is significant through the broadening and advancement in the range of procedural weight-loss options available to Fort Worth and surrounding area residents. Dr. Smith's patients may now choose between the standard multi-port laparoscopic procedure and the SILS procedure when considering the LAP-BAND(R), a popular surgical weight-loss procedure which Dr. Smith's Fort Worth practice specializes in.

SILS offers the benefit of only one small incision instead of the four to five incisions typically used for LAP-BAND(R) surgery. The single, well-concealed scar is positioned within the navel, lending to its reputation as a "scarless" procedure.
