Besides the routine preoperative evaluation and medical clearance, patients undergoing bandaid
surgery will have a standard colonic prep. Our patients traveling from out of town typically
elect to stay at the family house one day prior to surgery. This allows them the convenience of
staying on the hospital campus the day prior to surgery at a nominal cost.
Using our approach, our patients undergoing bandaid surgery are typically discharged 3-4 days
after their colon resection and are completely recovered 10 days after surgery. We have extensive
experience performing the following operations via a bandaid approach: colon resection (right
hemicolectomy, left hemicolectomy, sigmoid colectomy, and total abdominal colectomy), low anterior
resection (proctectomy), coloanal J pouch, abdominoperineal resection (APR), restorative
proctocolectomy (ileoanal pouch procedure), appendectomy and incisional hernia.
Our staff is committed to excellence in patient care. We emphasize the importance of patient education
and focus on improving the quality of their lives. Once patients enter our practice, we are committed to
them for their lifetime.
