Laparoscopic Hemicolectomy

It is the surgical technique used for the treatment and management of cancer and other colon diseases.

The Hemicolectomy with laparoscopic surgery is used to remove half of the colon (large intestine). It can be right hemicolectomy (cecum excision, ascending colon, hepatic flexure and transverse colon) or left (sigma excision, descending colon, splenic flexure and transverse colon).The use of very small incisions not only has esthetic advantages but it also reduces postoperative infections and postoperative pain.

As a result, you will have a shorter period of fasting, bed rest, hospitalization and time off work. The risk of hernias in these incisions is also reduced since they are smaller. Therefore there is less postoperative discomfort and the return to normal activities is earlier.
