What Procedures Does Dr. Laker Perform?
The overwhelming majority of my practice focuses on management of both common abdominal procedures and complex procedures performed in a laparoscopic manner.
The following can be performed laparoscopically:
The adrenal glands are mustard colored, small triangular or crescent shaped organs that are located on the upper pole of both kidneys. A layer of fatty tissue separates the adrenal glands from the kidneys. The adrenal gland is considered an endocrine organ in that it secretes substances into the blood stream that have a major impact on physiologic functions. During periods of stress (exercise, starvation, fear) the adrenal glands produce and release a number of hormones that optimize the body to best manage the stressors.
