Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery repairs damage to the colon, rectum, and anus caused by diseases of the lower digestive tract, such as cancer, diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease).

There are many different kinds of colon surgery and a variety of procedures to treat lower intestinal tract disorders. These may be performed either open or with a minimally-invasive technique.

Right Hemi-Colectomy
Portions of the ascending colon and the transverse colon are removed. The colon is then connected to the end of the small intestine.

Left Hemi Colectomy
Portions of the distal half of the transverse colon, the descending colon, and the sigmoid colon are removed.

Sigmoid Colon Resection
This procedure removes diseased portions of the colon above the rectum and below the descending colon.

Segmental Resection
A portion of a section of the colon is removed.
