Colorectal Surgery

Colon, rectum
and anus.

With the aid of
the colonoscopy, pathology of the colon, rectum and anus can be
diagnosed accurately. Polyps (small growths within the colon) can be
removed at the same time and sent for laboratory evaluation to assess
if cancerous or not. Other interventional procedures may be done such

  • Colonic
    stent placement for cancer or large bowel obstruction
  • ESD(endoscopic
    submucosal dissection).
  • EMR
    (endoscopic mucosal resection).

All our colorectal procedures are done Laparoscopically these include:

  • Segmental
    colon resection for colon cancer or certain benign conditions.
  • Low anterior
    resection for rectal cancer.
  • Abdomino-perineal
    (AP) resections for anal cancer.
  • Trans-anal
    total mesorectal excision (TATME) for rectal cancers.
  • Rectopexy
    for rectal prolapsed.
  • Acute and
    chronic peri-anal pathologies are also actively managed.
