Minimally Invasive Surgery

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

Minimally invasive, or laparoscopic, surgery differs from traditional open surgery by using just a few small incisions, microsurgical instruments and real-time imaging instead of larger, longer incisions that come with increased risks and a longer recovery time.

In laparoscopic surgery, carbon dioxide gas is then used to inflate the abdomen before a laparoscope - a thin, hollow tube with a camera attached - is inserted through one of the trocars to allow the surgical team to view the interior of the abdomen through the monitor.

Our clinic provides a wide range of surgery to treat all colorectal conditions.

When will minimally invasive surgery be used?

If you are suffering from colorectal conditions such as colon cancer and piles, we may recommend that you undergo minimally invasive surgery (where suitable) to treat them, as they tend to result in shorter recovery time and less risks.

These symptoms may suggest that you have a colorectal condition:

Blood in stools
Chronic constipation
Abdominal pain
Abdominal distension and bloating
Change in bowel habits
Unexplained weight loss

If you observe that you are experiencing the symptoms above, please visit an experienced surgeon for a detailed assessment.

Minimally invasive surgery is an advanced surgical method that yields great benefits to eligible patients; and our colorectal surgeons are skilled in this technique.
Why is minimally invasive surgery recommended?

While minimally invasive surgery is generally a more advantageous method, it may not always be the best one for certain situations.

Speak to your doctor for personalized advice.
