Laparoscopic Bowel Resection

Laparoscopic (key-hole) bowel resection referes to the surgical technique of using long instruments through numerous small incisions to allow access to the abdominal cavity. This type of surgery has revolutionised bowel resections as it now greatly reduces the surgical stress that a major bowel resection places upon the body.

Laparoscopic bowel resection offers many advantages over conventional open surgery, although it is not always a possible alternative. Click here to learn more about laparoscopic bowel resections.
