This type of surgery addresses conditions of the colon typically caused by diverticulitis and cancer. We frequently are able to do laparoscopic colon surgery in many of our patients. These are operations that are technically challenging and most surgeons tend to use larger open incisions to do these operations. Because of our minimally invasive laparoscopic approach, many patients are discharged only a few days following the surgery.
