Laparoscopic Large Bowel Surgery

This is a minimally invasive technique for removing bowel through very small incisions. It is aimed at reducing the length of hospital stay and improving recovery rates.

Laparoscopic Adhesion Surgery

Adhesions are fibrous bands that form between tissues and organs, often as a result of previous surgical operations. They may be thought of as an internal scar tissue that connects structures together that are not normally connected. Using minimally invasive surgical techniques, it is possible to divide these adhesions, returning structures to their normal anatomical position. This type of surgery is usually performed for abdominal pain or in patients who develop blockages. It is aimed to reduce length of stay in hospital, improve symptoms and improve recovery rates.

Enhanced Recovery after Surgery
