Minimally Invasive Colon Surgery

Posted on: 08/11/2014

We offer minimally invasive Laparoscopic surgery for patients with cancer, diverticulitis and other benign diseases of the colon & rectum. Laparoscopy is the least invasive form of surgery and has proven benefits when compared to open traditional surgery. Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery have smaller incisions, experience less pain and recover quicker. They return to work earlier and have good cosmetic results. The average hospital stay for minimally invasive colon surgery is three four days, compared to a seven day hospital stay for traditional surgery. This method has also proven to be oncologically safe and effective when it comes to treatment of colon cancer.
