SS Medicity Hospital provides state-of-the-art laparoscopic surgery for a variety of colon and rectal conditions, including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticular disease, familial polyposis, chronic constipation, colon cancer and rectal prolapse.
A minimally invasive approach to surgery, laparoscopic procedures afford patients the benefit of smaller incisions, less pain, fewer heart, lung and wound complications and shortened hospital stay. “The best thing about laparoscopic colon surgery is that we can offer patients the results of a traditional, open surgery but with incisions that are only two inches long”. Traditional surgical treatment for many intestinal disorders has required a long midline abdominal incision and a lengthy recovery period of between four and eight weeks.
A minimally invasive approach is perhaps THE leading advance in colon surgery in the last decade. The excellent outcomes and particularly an early return to work and the need for minimal pain medication ensure a prominent role for this approach in the future.
