Laparoscopic Repair of Diastasis Recti? (photo)
I'm a 70-year-old man with diastasis recti. I'm interested in having it repaired but would need the surgery to be minimally invasive, as I'm anemic (due to myelodysplastic syndrome) and have had a splenectomy (last year, due to complications from the MDS, which has since been well controlled). I'm fit and thin and, as you can see in the photos, have no excess skin. Would laparoscopic repair be appropriate/advisable? Are their any doctors in the NYC area who have experience with this?
