Colon Surgery – Charlotte, North Carolina
One of the most common indications for colon surgery is colon cancer. It is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in the United States. These tumors are typically detected during colonoscopy and can occur anywhere along the colon.
Another common reason for needing colon surgery is diverticulitis. In this condition, small bulging sacs or pouches in the colon become infected. The most common symptom is severe pain in the left lower abdomen. The pain can be associated with fevers or nausea.
The primary treatment of these colon diseases is surgical resection. Our surgeons specialize in performing these procedures with minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques. This approach leaves smaller scars, and allows for a quicker recovery and less pain.
