With this new technology, instead of performing gastric sleeve surgery through several small slits in the abdomen, the doctor only needs to make one tiny incision in the abdomen. What’s more, this incision is normally in or near the navel, so many patients can’t even see their scars and others can’t tell they’ve had surgery.
The pain from a herniated disk can limit a person’s activity severely but often responds well to medications, physical therapy, or steroids. At the Marina Spine Center we have treated world class athletes who have returned to their sport with this injury.
The mainstay of our nonoperative care is to decrease the patient’s pain and inflammation in order for the patient to be able to do spinal exercises. If the patient can increase their trunk muscles to work in a balanced and coordinated fashion then they can decrease the stress on their spine and decrease the pain.
According to a landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical association (JAMA) in 2004, diabetes went into remission for 76.8% of patients and significantly improved in 86% of patients. Weight loss surgery has traditionally been indicated for the morbidly obese, meaning people with a body mass index of 40 or over, as well as people with BMI of 35 and at least one condition related to obesity, including diabetes.
