What is Colorectal Surgery?

Colorectal surgeries are the operations performed to treat a part of your lower intestine tract that is diseased or damaged. Cancer, any deformity, rectal disease, an accident, or an infection could be the cause of this damage.

A variety of surgical procedures can be used during colorectal surgery. Given your general health and specific health situation, your surgeon will consult you to determine the best course of action. You might be recommended for open or laparoscopic surgery. The open operation involves making a significant incision in the belly, which is sometimes necessary for complex situations. On the other hand, laparoscopic and robotic colorectal surgeries have the lowest rate of complications, which require small 2-4 incisions. 

Depending on how well you recover, you can expect to spend several days in the hospital following a laparoscopic proctology surgery. Both adults and children can be recommended for these operations.

What are the main Symptoms
of Colorectal Disease?

Colorectal diseases might not have immediate symptoms, but if it does, you might experience the following

Colorectal conditions might often lead to bleeding in the digestive tract. The blood can occasionally be detected in the stool or make it appear darker. However, the stool frequently appears normal. Blood loss can accumulate over time and result in anemia, commonly known as low red blood cell count. A blood test revealing a low red blood cell count might occasionally be the first indication of a colorectal condition. Some people might also experience jaundice or troubled breathing. 

Many of these symptoms can be caused by conditions other than colorectal conditions, such as infection, hemorrhoids, or irritable bowel syndrome. So, if you have any of these conditions, it is better to see the expert doctors at Wockhardt Hospitals. They will help you precisely diagnose and treat the problem. 

What are the Causes
of Colorectal Problems?

Colorectal conditions occur when the DNA in cells of the colon or rectum mutates. That makes them unable to control growth and division. In some cases, the immune system attacks these mutated cells and dies. However, the cells that escape the attack grow abnormally, forming a colon or rectum tumor. 

Some colorectal problems might not have a specific cause, whereas some may occur due to:

What is the Procedure for
Colorectal Surgery?

The most common procedures used for proctology surgery are :

Open proctology surgery is typically used when minimally invasive procedures fail or are infeasible. This might be required if the area or amount of damage is too great for laparoscopic or robotic surgery to handle or if the treatment requires the surgeon to observe a greater region.

The most popular and preferred technique for colorectal surgery is this one, and many medical professionals favor it. Most of the time, only one incision is necessary, and most of the procedure is performed using minimally invasive tools like a laparoscope, camera, and other medical equipment that the surgeon controls from a distance. Laparoscopic surgery requires a shorter recovery time than conventional open operations, and it also has fewer postoperative risks and complications.

Yet not everyone will be a good fit for laparoscopic surgery, which is typically not an option for patients with multiple abdominal procedures or other organ involvement, such as adhesions that have spread to nearby organs.

Another minimally invasive approach is robotic proctology surgery. With both utilizing cameras and surgical equipment through a single or few incisions, robotic surgery and laparoscopic surgery share many similarities. This method offers improved post-operative healing and fewer problems in most circumstances.

Laparoscopic surgery is less precise than robotic surgery, but robotic surgery gives the physician a sharper, more accurate vision of the surgical site and better control over the surgical instruments for desired medical outcomes.

before Proctology Surgery?
