PREVIEW: Minimally Invasive Colorectal Resection to Treat Colon Cancer
Tuesday, April 27, at 12:00PM EDT - During a colon resection, also known as a colectomy, the diseased part of the large intestine is surgically removed and the remaining healthy ends of the colon are reattached. The procedure in this program is performed to remove a cancerous tumor; however, people with numerous other gastrointestinal disorders including large benign polyps, Crohn's disease, Ulcerative Colitis and diverticulitis may also require removal of a part of their colon.

Viewing this Webcast should make it easier for you, the patient, to understand what constitutes a laparoscopic (also called minimally invasive) colorectal resection. In addition, a brief discussion is included about how colon cancer is diagnosed, the tests that are typically performed once the diagnosis has been made, and the surgical treatment options. What to expect after surgery is also covered in this presentation.
