Spreading the word about minimally invasive surgeries

We research, write and edit countless physician healthcare commentaries every month for doctors to discuss topics related to their medical specialty.  Today, we all marveled at how today’s medicine can fix so many chronic health problems using minimally invasive surgery.

Just a decade ago, these surgical procedures could only be performed using an open (one large incision) procedure. Today’s minimally invasive options offer patients less scarring, less pain and quicker recovery. We’re sold.

One of the benefits of consumer healthcare articles written by doctors is that the reader can become more educated about a healthcare condition and then discuss it with his own physican–or–better yet–the physician who wrote the article.

Here’s a small sampling of recent articles that appeared in internet and print publications:
