Colon and Rectal SurgeryWe are experts in colon cancer surgery and rectal cancer surgeries, as well as benign conditions of these organs such as diverticulitis.
Laparoscopic surgeries are performed with few small incisions, 5-10mm in size, to allow for insertion of a video camera (laparoscope) and instruments. The specimen will be removed through an incision 2 inches in length. Intra-operative blood loss is minimal and post-operative recovery is fast.
We also offer transrectal tumor excision for certain rectal tumors. In this procedure the tumor is removed via rectum without need for traditional abdominal surgery. Further treatments may be required based on the nature of the tumor and patient condition.
