Our Colorectal and General Surgeons perform a range of procedures for conditions such as rectal or colon cancer, Hemorrhoids and biopsies via robotics at Lingard Private Hospital.
If medicine or lifestyle changes do not help your colorectal condition, your doctor may suggest surgery. Common colorectal conditions include:
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease)
- Colon Cancer
- Rectal Cancer
If your doctor suggests surgery, learning about all surgical options can help you to make the best decision for your situation.
Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy, and rectal cancer surgery to remove part or all or the rectum is known as a rectal resection. Either type of surgery can be done using open surgery (through one large incision) or laparoscopy (through a few small incisions).
Laparoscopy is also known as minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery can be done using traditional laparoscopy or robotic-assisted da Vinci Surgery at Lingard Private Hospital.
