COLON & RECTAL Minimally Invasive Surgery

Diseases of the colon, benign & malignant, once required open surgery with a large incision, resulting in a difficult and painful recovery time for patients. Now, when appropriate, Hudson Valley Surgical Group utilizes Minimally Invasive Surgery techniques for many diseases of the gastrointestinal system including diverticulitis and colon and rectal cancers.The most common Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) colon & rectal procedures include , hemorrhoidectomy, colon removal or repair and small intestine surgery.

Minimally Invasive Colon & Rectal Advance Techniques

The MI Surgeons of HVSG are the experts in laparoscopic, minimally invasive colon surgery. This advanced technique involves a series of four to five smaller incisions (allowing for placement of the minimally invasive instruments), instead of one large incision to perform the surgery. This powerful new technology enables surgeons to complete the surgery faster and more precisely than ever before, a welcomed surprise to many patients who are unaware that minimally invasive colon and rectal surgery is available.
