Minimally Invasive Colon Surgery

Many patients who suffer from colon conditions will require a surgical intervention at some point in their lives. Often, surgery is the best treatment option to provide relief from symptoms and restore function to the bowel.

In most advanced colon cases, a surgery will eventually become necessary to maintain your quality of life.

Minimally Invasive Colon Surgery

Most colon surgeries can be performed laparoscopically. This minimally invasive technique generally leads to better patient outcomes than traditional, open surgery. The techniques employed by our doctors are designed to minimize damage to surrounding, healthy tissues, resulting in less pain, scarring, and blood loss, and a significantly reduced postoperative recovery time.

Laparoscopic surgeries are performed by making a few small incisions near the belly button. Small tubes containing a video camera and surgical instruments are introduced through these incisions, allowing complete access to the treatment area. After the surgery, these incisions are closed up and the scars will become barely visible after a few months. For certain advanced cases, the use of robotic-assisted surgery can also benefit our patients. Our surgeons are experienced using this advanced surgical technology, and can help determine whether it is right for you.
