Laparoscopic Colon Surgery

Reduce your recovery time up to 50%

This procedure utilizes specialized tools and an instrument known as a laparoscope to perform colon surgery through a number of tiny incisions. A special camera is placed into the abdomen that allows the surgeon to see the surgical site without completely opening the area.

Open Colon Surgery

This traditional form of colon surgery is still the best option for some patients. Open surgery requires a larger incision that allows the surgeon to see directly into the surgical site. This procedure may be used when the entire colon must be removed or in cases where the amount of damage to the colon cannot be fully determined with other techniques.

What’s Best for You?

The type of colon surgery we use depends on the area of the colon that requires treatment, the specific disease to be addressed and the patient’s previous medical history. To learn more about your options, give us a call at 406.542.7525.
