Colorectal Surgery Profile Image

Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery is a field in medicine, dealing with disorders of the rectum, anus, and colon.

Different types of surgical treatment: 

Surgical forms of treatment for these conditions include:

  • Colectomy
  • Ileo/colostomy
  • Polypectomy
  • Strictureplasty
  • Hemorrhoidectomy (in severe cases of hemorrhoids)
  • Anoplasty and more depending on the condition the patient has.

Diagnostic procedures for colorectal surgery

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.

Diet after going through colorectal surgery

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.
