- Colon removal
- Colon surgery
laparoscopic colorectal surgery
- HAL colectomy
Treated with Hand-Assisted Laparoscopic Colectomy:
Hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomy may be utilized
in cases of Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, bowel obstruction, colorectal
cancer (or a high risk of colorectal cancer), injury to the large intestine and
abdominal infection or trauma.
There are no comparable non-surgical alternatives to
hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomy. A laparoscopic or full colectomy is a
surgical alternative to the procedure.
with Hand-Assisted Laparoscopic Colectomy:
Hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomy is performed
under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely
unaware during the procedure.
Complications from Hand-Assisted Laparoscopic Colectomy:
Possible risks following hand-assisted laparoscopic
colectomy include infection, bleeding, incisional hernia and a negative
reaction to the anesthesia.
after Hand-Assisted Laparoscopic Colectomy:
The prognosis for a positive end result following
hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomy is good.
from Hand-Assisted Laparoscopic Colectomy:
Total recovery from
hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomy takes two to three weeks.
