Laparoscopic colon surgery is a procedure in which the surgeon performs surgery on abdominal organs through a few small incisions in the abdomen. The surgeon then uses a small camera that displays an enlarged image of the internal organs onto a screen, to prevent the need for a large incision and allow for direct viewing of all of the internal abdominal organs. This surgical technique is minimally invasive, and patients generally recover quickly from laparoscopic colon surgery. If you are looking for a GI surgeon who can perform laparoscopic colon surgery, trust the nation's leading physician-led network of GI specialists and contact GI Alliance.

Some of the common advantages of laparoscopic colon surgery, when compared to invasive colon surgery, can include less scarring from the incisions, a quicker recovery period, less pain following the operation, and a quicker return to normal digestive activity such as eating, drinking, and bowel function. However, not everyone is a candidate for laparoscopic colon surgery, and you should talk to your doctor about the best options for you. To discuss your surgery with a GI specialist, contact GI Alliance.

Complications following laparoscopic colon surgery, as with any procedure, are a possibility. However, they are generally uncommon for laparoscopic colon surgery. Possible complications following the surgery could include infection, scar tissue that could possibly form an intestinal block, or the incision reopening. Prior to your procedure, you should discuss all the risks and benefits of surgery with your GI Alliance physician so that you are well-informed.

Before your laparoscopic colon surgery, you can expect some preliminary steps. These will include blood work, and other general testing and evaluations to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. You will need to empty your colon and rectum completely before surgery by drinking a special cleansing solution, and possibly a special diet of clear liquids and laxatives before your procedure. You will also be prescribed antibiotics prior to the procedure to reduce the risk of infection. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully before surgery.
