Before laparoscopic surgery, a surgeon would have to make a large incision through the body to perform most any major procedure, specifically in the abdominal, intestines and colon. Today, most colon and rectal procedures are performed laparoscopically which is a specialized “minimally invasive” technique, utilizing a laparoscope and a computer monitor.
What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery requires several tiny incisions or ports. A trocar is inserted through each port. Small cameras and specialized surgical instruments pass through the trocars into the abdominal cavity to perform a variety of intestinal procedures. Your surgeon can see what they are doing as the images are transmitted to video monitors in the operating room.
This type of minimally-invasive surgery means a faster recovery time, little to no scarring and results in far fewer complications during and after surgery. The hand of the top-notch surgeon is required to perform laparoscopic intestinal, colon and rectal surgery.
