Martin Barrios, MD and Peter M. Denk, MD Launch Florida Incisionless, A New Surgical Practice in Fort Myers
FORT MYERS, Fla., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Martin Barrios, MD and Peter M. Denk, MD announced today the opening of their new practice, FLORIDA INCISIONLESS, which is conveniently located on Palm Beach Blvd. and Interstate 75 at:
4881 Palm Beach Blvd., Suite 100 Fort Myers, FL 33905 Office Phone: 239-433-3504 Fax: 239-693-7369
Dr. Barrios and Dr. Denk are leaders and world innovators in Incisionless procedures providing minimally invasive alternatives to traditional surgery. Patients experience less discomfort and inconvenience allowing them to return to normal activities quickly.
“As members of the greater Fort Myers area we are concerned about the health of our community,” said Dr. Barrios, “and are pleased to offer the latest in surgical treatment to patients throughout the region.”
Pioneers in Incisionless surgical treatment for gastrointestinal (GI) disorders and weight loss, Doctors Barrios and Denk developed the new Incisionless surgical treatment called WiFi (Weight-loss Incisionless, Fundoplication Incisionless), which treats both acid reflux AND obesity.
They performed the first WiFi procedure in February 2011 which repairs the flap valve at the top of the stomach as well as shrinks the capacity of the stomach. Since WiFi is an Incisionless procedure performed through the esophagus, post-operatively patients experience an immediate resolution of their pre-operative complaints and report minimal discomfort, usually only a sore throat associated with endoscopy.
“At Florida Incisionless, we and our staff are committed to providing the most advanced treatment options available for Incisionless and single-incision treatment for Acid Reflux, Weight-loss, and other GI disorders depending on the patient’s individual needs,” said Dr. Denk.
Florida Incisionless accepts most health plans and the office is open for appointments. In addition, Florida Incisionless hosts free informational seminars for weight loss and acid reflux. To learn more, visit www.floridaincisionless.com or call 239-433-3504.
