Baptist Health Floyd Physical Therapy And Its Service
At Baptist Health Floyd Physical Therapy, they take care of people with diabetes daily and help them manage their disease so they may enjoy their lives. They have been connected to the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Massachusetts, since 1997. This center was one of the first to treat, manage, and teach about diabetes. They now have access to innovative clinical and educational programs that focus on the community. Their team of board-certified endocrinologists, diabetes educators, certified exercise specialists, and other medical professionals is committed to helping people 18 and older get and stay healthy and avoid the effects of illnesses that can make them weak.
Endocrinology is the part of medicine that studies hormones and diseases and conditions caused by them. The pancreas, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pituitary, hypothalamus, ovaries, and testes make hormones. These organs are all part of the endocrine system. Several health problems have been linked to hormone imbalances. These can greatly affect many body functions, like metabolism, blood sugar levels, emotional states, blood pressure, heart rate, sexual function, and fertility.

The da Vinci robotic surgery system is only used at Baptist Health Floyd, the only hospital in Southern Indiana. The da Vinci surgical machine can handle a wide range of minimally invasive surgeries, such as bariatric, gallbladder, inguinal hernia repair, ventral hernia repair, acid reflux, stomach, pancreas, and small bowel, and spleen surgery. The robot does not do the surgery, and the surgeon uses tools guided by the da Vinci console to do the surgery. The da Vinci system lets the surgeon see the surgical area in high-definition, magnified 3D. Because da Vinci makes smaller cuts, the patient gets better more quickly. Also, it means less pain and less time in the hospital.
