Laparoscopic Colon Surgery

Laparoscopic Colon Surgery
Laparoscopic colon surgery, also known as band-aid colon surgery, is a revolutionary colorectal surgical technique that was pioneered and perfected by Dr. David Blumberg, a Board Certified General and Colorectal Surgeon while in the Department of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Dr. Blumberg was named one of America's Top Doctors in 2007 and 2008.

Laparoscopic Colorectal (Colon) Surgery

While most colon surgeries are performed partially laparoscopically ("laparoscopic-assisted colectomy"), Dr. Blumberg has the experience, expertise, technical instrumentation and track record of performing an entire surgery laparoscopically (total laparoscopic colectomy).

Dr. Blumberg refers to this cutting edge technique as "band-aid surgery" due to the use of incisions no greater than 1-2 inches. Instead of making an incision the full length of the abdomen, laparoscopic colon surgery involves just four small incisions. This radical approach to laparoscopic colon surgery results in less discomfort, quicker recovery, and improved cosmetic look. In many cases, recovery time is reduced by half. The approach assures successful treatment of patients' illnesses while minimizing the trauma of traditional surgery.

Because of these beneficial quality-of-life effects, laparoscopic colectomy and colon surgery is becoming a new standard for most colon diseases including colon polyps, colon cancer, rectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohns disease, rectal prolapse and diverticulitis.

For a full description of how colon surgery is performed laparoscopically, see "What is Band-Aid Surgery?" For additional information on Dr Blumberg and his work, view his professional background.
