Colorectal Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery or keyhole surgery,  is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions.

Robotic-Assisted Colorectal Surgery

Robotic-assisted colorectal surgery revolutionizes the field of minimally-invasive surgery. The robotic machine combines 3D high definition vision with multiple instruments that have a complete range of subtle movement and rotations in the body. This allows the surgeon enhanced dexterity, precision and control of the instruments.

Robotic-assisted colorectal surgery provides many benefits to patients. There are small incisions hence, reduced scarring. There is less operative pain and lower risk of infection. There is faster recovery and return to normal function. Overall, there is superior treatment outcome.

Anal Sphincter Preservation

Anal sphincters are the muscles surrounding the anus that provide fecal continence, or the ability to control farting or defecation. The preservation of anal sphincter function and the avoidance of the need for permanent colostomy are of utmost importance. The preservation of continence is determined by the knowledge and skill of the surgeon. Your specialists continuously refine their techniques to preserve the anal sphincter during operations for cancer of the colon and rectum, and other colorectal conditions.

Repair can also be done to anal sphincters damaged by prior surgery and childbirth injuries. Techniques are now available to assess sphincter function by Anal Manometry,
Endoanal ultrasound, and nerve testing.

 

Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization (THD)

Using a doppler ultrasound, the blood vessel supplying the hemorrhoid is identified and ligated with stitches. Deprived of its blood supply, the hemorrhoid then shrinks and shrivels. There is no wound outside and is therefore almost painless.
