Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery techniques are often used in the treatment of conditions of the colon and rectum. Using minimally invasive colorectal surgery, our surgeons apply these advanced technologies to:

  • Avoid large incisions
  • Lessen trauma to the body
  • Preserve colorectal structure and function, including the creation of bowel anastomosis, and innovative methods to avoid permanent colostomies and ileostomies
  • Minimize the effect of surgery on the immune system
