Individualized Treatment for Improved Outcomes
Because our doctors understand how difficult living with the discomfort associated with certain colon conditions can be, we specialize in pain management as well as corrective surgery. During a consultation, our doctors will consider your health history, symptoms, and imaging diagnostics to develop an individualized treatment plan. Through a combination of pain therapy and surgical intervention, we help to guide all of our patients to the best possible treatment outcome.
Our surgeons have experience performing many different laparoscopic colon procedures, including:
- Colon resection
- Left colectomy
- Right colectomy
- Sigmoid colectomy
- Small bowel resection
- Total abdominal colectomy
Depending on the patient's diagnosis and the extent of their symptoms, our doctors will closely discuss their recommendation and provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision. 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.
