New Micro Laparoscopic Instruments for the Bariatric Surgery Allow for Less Scarring and Pain than Ever Before Possible
Date:8/23/2011

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The concept of smaller, thinner laparoscopic tools has been an idealized, but unrealized prospect for many years since the advent of laparoscopic surgery. Some prominent manufacturers of surgical instruments have created micro-laparoscopic instruments in the past, but they did not perform to the standard that bariatric surgeons require. The most common complaints were how the extremely thin instruments would bend under the stress of the patient's fat and muscle tissue. However the advent of more resilient titanium and ceramic combinations has finally made micro-laparoscopic surgery possible, and select surgeons, such as Los Angeles's Dr. Michael Feiz and Dr. Monali Misra, are starting to provide this innovative micro-lap surgery for eligible patients.

The new micro-laparoscopic tools were designed and manufactured by the Transenterix medical device company in order to provide both the surgeon and the patient with the most efficient surgery possible. Whereas in the past, gastric sleeve or Lap Band surgery was performed via instruments that left a 5mm scar in the abdomen, the new micro-lap instruments are so thin that they only leave a scar of 2.7mm in diameter. This means that the scar is essentially half the size of a grain of rice, and often appears similar to a freckle. An added benefit of micro-lap surgery is that there is a potential for faster recovery and less pain after the procedure. Individuals who are considering the Lap Band in Beverly Hills, but are afraid of scarring, will surely find the micro-Lap Band to be the answer to their fears. Dr. Feiz and his team will be providing the micro-Lap Band in 13 convenient locations throughout the Los Angeles area in order to make this life-changing procedure as accessible as possible.

The experience and passionate care the team at Dr. Feiz and Associates provides is unmatched, designating the offices of Dr. Fe
