Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery

Any conditions involving the colon and rectum fall under colorectal diseases. Conditions may be mild, easily treatable via medications and lifestyle modifications; or severe, requiring surgery.

Colorectal surgery may be done open or laparoscopically, the latter being the preferred choice because of its minimally-invasive nature and fewer risks involved. Also known as keyhole surgery, laparoscopic colorectal surgery does away with the single 6- to 12-inch large incision associated with open surgery.

Instead, it accesses and treats the colorectal region via small incisions in the abdomen, through which a laparoscope and tiny surgical tools are inserted. A laparoscope is an optical instrument equipped with a light and camera which allows the doctor to examine the abdominal organs via a monitor. Air may also be pumped into the colon to inflate the abdominal walls, providing a better view and access to the area.
