Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery Options

Contact Us Today at 646.798.4606 for an Appointment

After you have been diagnosed with a colorectal disease, such as colon cancer, your doctor may determine that surgery is the most appropriate option for you. At Manhattan Surgical Associates, we have mastered, and in some cases, pioneered the most advanced surgical techniques available.

Once you have undergone all of the necessary testing, we may recommend a method of minimally invasive surgery instead of open surgery. Our colorectal surgeons are interested in tailoring the surgical approach to your particular situation. Often this will involve the use of minimally invasive techniques.

Call Manhattan Surgical Associates today at 646.798.4606.

Colorectal Surgery Options

There are many different approaches available other than traditional open surgery, including those which use tiny incisions and a laparoscope. There are numerous benefits associated with a minimally invasive approach, including less blood loss, less pain, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster return to normal activities. Minimally invasive surgery also helps to cut down on the risks of infection and hernias.

There are a number of different forms of minimally invasive surgery, including:

  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Hand Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery (HALS)
  • Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
  • Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TEMS
  • Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS)

Minimally invasive surgery may be used as a treatment option for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Rectal cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Colon polyps
  • Rectal polyps
  • Diverticulitis
