Our surgeons specialize in minimally invasive, laparoscopic colon procedures which are performed via very small incisions that allow for quicker healing, less post-operative pain and potentially fewer post-operative complications. The surgeon operates via thin tubes that are inserted into three to five incisions of less than one-quarter of an inch each. One of these incisions is made larger to accommodate removal of a portion of the colon.  A telescopic device with a camera at the end (called a laparoscope) allows the surgeon to view the operating field via monitor. While not every patient will be a suitable candidate for laparoscopic colon surgery, your doctor will thoroughly discuss your treatment options based on your specific condition and needs.
