Colorectal surgery is a field in medicine, dealing with disorders of the rectum, anus, and colon.
Surgical forms of treatment for these conditions include:
Diagnostic procedures, such as a colonoscopy, are very important in colorectal surgery, as they can tell the physician what type of diagnosis should be given and what procedure should be done to correct the condition.
Other diagnostic procedures used by colorectal surgeons include: proctoscopy, defecating proctography, sigmoidoscopy. In recent times, the laparoscopic method of surgery has seen a surge of popularity, due to its lower risks, decreased recovery time, and smaller, more precise incisions achieved by using laparoscopic instruments.
Going through colorectal surgery will definitely temporarily affect your bowel movements and functions. The speed of food travelling through the colon will decrease and bloating can be expected.
