Colon & Rectal Resections

It is necessary to surgically remove a section or length of the colon or rectum for a variety of conditions including cancers, large benign polyps, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns Disease), rectal prolapse, constipation, and for other large bowel problems that can develop. Most often a 7 to 10 inch segment of the colon or rectum is removed although in some situations a lengthier resection is carried out.


There are 2 basic methods by which trans-abdomen operations are carried; “open” and minimally invasive methods.
