When you’re dealing with certain digestion-related problems, you may need to consider the idea of surgery. Often, issues may occur within the colon, and you may need a colon resection. This surgery is done robotically and can help improve your life and help you manage certain problems that may occur in the colon. Your doctors at Suburban Surgical Associates/Suburban Metabolic Institute in La Grange, Elmhurst, and Berwyn, IL, can explain this robotic surgery and what a colon resection is.
What is a Colon Resection?
When you’re dealing with certain issues, you may find that you have complications that occur within the colon. With a colon resection, you can restructure your colon by removing certain parts or repairing areas where damage has occurred. With this robotic surgery from your doctors serving Berwyn, Elmhurst, and LaGrange, IL, you’ll be able to reduce some of the pain and irritation that you experience and manage your symptoms easily.
Some common issues that colon restructuring can assist with include:
- Intestinal blockage
- Colon cancer
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
With the use of robotics, the procedure is minimally invasive and recovery time is usually shorter. You’ll be able to experience lower pain levels and your hospital stay should be shorter than most. Within no time, you’ll start feeling less pain and you’ll be able to get back to your favorite activities without the fear of pain or further complications. You also won’t have to worry about large scars because the incisions are smaller than without robotic surgery.
