Colon and rectum are part of the digestive system which helps to carry out the process of digestion. The function of the colon is to absorb the water and excrete the waste products as stools, and the rectum holds the stools before it is finally released. Colorectal disorders affect some part of the colon and rectum. Colorectal surgery deals with surgically correctable disorders of the colon, rectum and anal canal.
How is laparoscopic surgery conducted?
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery in which a camera attached to a narrow tube is inserted into the abdomen or chest. This camera ensures proper vision of the area that needs to be operated. During the procedure, small incisions(cuts) are made in the body through which other laparoscopic instruments are inserted. The surgeon can look at the monitor and further conduct the operation. In the case of colorectal surgery, the affected part of the colon or rectum and blood vessels are removed. Being a minimally invasive technique, here the recovery period and the amount of pain is much less.
Traditionally open surgery was conducted to treat colorectal disorders, but the use of laparoscopic surgery has made the whole procedure much easier and has reduced the complications.
Types of colorectal disorders treated
