Laparoscopic Colon Surgery in Sarasota

According to the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, more than 600,000 colon disease related surgeries are performed annually in the U.S. alone.  Patients who have to undergo a traditional colon surgery have to face a long recovery period, because a traditional procedure is highly invasive and usually requires a long incision.

This type of surgery usually puts the patient in the hospital for a week or even longer. Even once he or she is released, the patient faces another 6 weeks of outpatient recovery.

Surgical Options for Sarasota Colon Cancer Patients

In Sarasota, minimally invasive laparoscopic colon surgery gives surgeons a way to perform colon surgery without the need for a large incision and extended recovery time. Most laparoscopic colon surgeries are performed through several small incisions. Using small video cameras, the surgeons watch an image of the patient's colon on a nearby monitor.
