Minimally Invasive Colorectal Surgery
Here, you can learn more about our Minimally Invasive Colorectal surgery services!
Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute has committed to providing state-of-the-art minimally invasive colorectal surgery as an innovative and safe alternative to conventional open surgery. In minimally invasive surgery, surgeons can perform standard surgical procedures through small incisions (0.5-1 cm) using specialized surgical instruments. This also called keyhole surgical technique includes laparoscopic and robotic colorectal surgery.
The benefits of Minimally Invasive Colorectal Surgery are:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Small incision
- Reduce infection rate
- Economic gain (quick recovery time)
Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute has been one of the pioneers and regional leaders in Minimally Invasive Surgery for many years and continuously provided excellent patient care and safety by integrated teams of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals.
Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery
Traditional surgical approach for intestinal conditions has required a long abdominal incision and four to eight weeks period of recovery. Nowadays with an innovation in laparoscopic surgery, surgeon can offer the result of open conventional surgery through tiny (also called keyhole) incision.
The excellent outcomes of laparoscopic colorectal surgery include small incision, less pain, less infection, reduced blood loss and the rate of blood transfusion. It also enhances quick recovery and economic gain (less hospital stay and early return to work).
Bangkok Hospital Phuket provides state-of-the-art laparoscopic surgery for a variety of colon and rectal conditions, including both colorectal cancer and benign conditions such as diverticular disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, , familial polyposis, chronic constipation and rectal prolapse.
Robotic Colorectal Surgery
Advanced robotic technology allows more precise surgery than ever before by using high-definition magnified-3D image (10 times greater than the human eye) for the surgeon who operates from a console equipped with two master controllers that maneuver four robotic arms. Like other minimally invasive procedures, robotic surgery is performed through small incisions; however the greater vision and better agronomy (better control) enhance the surgeon to perform safer surgical procedures that can't be achieved with standard laparoscopic techniques. Most patients who undergo robotic surgery experience less blood loss and significantly less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stay and return to work more quickly.
