Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is a non-invasive method used for performing various surgical procedures. It reduces the length of recovery compared to conventional open abdominal surgery and allows patients to return to their usual routines sooner than conventional surgical methods. Many common colon and rectal diseases and disorders can be treated with laparoscopic procedures.

Laparoscopic surgery uses a small tube and camera to provide Dr. Rad with a view of the internal structures involved in a procedure. This means surgical procedures can be completed with only small incisions. In addition to reducing recovery time, laparoscopic surgery also creates less scarring.

Laparoscopic surgery is a suitable option for treating a variety of colon problems. For our patients, these issues include:

  • Colorectal cancer
  • Large colon polyps
  • Diverticulitis
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Rectal prolapse
  • Constipation


Is Laparoscopic Surgery Safe?

Laparoscopic surgery is considered safe and has been used for a variety of abdominal and pelvic problems for several decades. The procedure reduces many of the common side effects seen with conventional open abdominal surgery. However, there are risks involved, as there is with any surgical procedure. Dr. Rad will discuss these risks with you and answer any questions you may have.
