Laparoscopic Bowel Disease
Treatment (Malignant and Benign)
Bowel diseases present distinct challenges in gastrointestinal health.
Benign conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease) and intestinal bowel syndrome encompass non-cancerous issues that can significantly impact daily life.
Conversely, malignant diseases, including colorectal cancer, pose a grave threat, demanding swift and precise intervention.
Laparoscopic surgery, a minimally invasive approach, becomes a key solution, ensuring improved patient outcomes and faster recovery times. In bowel disease management, it offers hope and efficiency for a better quality of life.
Laparoscopic Bowel Disease Surgery: A Relieving Surgery
Laparoscopic bowel disease surgery has recently been gaining acceptance as an alternative approach for patients dealing with various benign and malignant bowel diseases.
It is due to the potential benefits of this surgery like:
- Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
- Reduced costs
- Lower risks and complications
- Minimized postoperative discomfort
- Less noticeable scars
Various Laparoscopic Surgery for Bowel Disease
Various laparoscopic surgeries can be used to address bowel diseases, ensuring effective treatment with lower risks and complications. These procedures include:
- Laparoscopic colon polyp removal- During a laparoscopic surgery to remove colon polyps, our surgeon, Dr. Nikolas, injects a blue dye around the polyp, aiding in its identification and ensuring complete removal. He makes several small incisions in the abdomen and use a long, thin instrument with a camera and light on the end called a laparoscope to see the surgical site marked area in the bowel and remove it safely.
- Laparoscopic ileocolectomy- This procedure is commonly used to treat conditions such as Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, or certain types of colorectal cancer. This minimally invasive approach involves the removal of a portion of the ileum and colon affected by the disease.
- Laparoscopic surgery for colon cancer- In laparoscopic surgery for colon cancer, Dr. Nikolas utilizes specialized tools to excise the cancerous portion of the colon, employing a minimally invasive technique for improved patient outcomes.
- Laparoscopic ileostomy- This is done when your colon or rectum can’t be used to eliminate digestive waste (poop). This procedure involves creating a permanent opening in the abdomen, allowing stool to pass through for collection in an attached bag.
Dr. Nikolas ensures skilled and compassionate care throughout these laparoscopic procedures, prioritizing optimal outcomes for each patient.
