Minimally invasive laparoscopic colon surgery allows the surgeons at New Jersey Bariatric Center® to perform many common colon procedures through small incisions. Depending on the type of procedure, patients may leave the hospital in a few days and return to normal activities 3 to 4 weeks after surgery.
How NJBC Can Help
In most laparoscopic colon resections, New Jersey Bariatric Center® surgeons operate through four or five small openings (each about a quarter of an inch) while viewing an image of the patient’s internal organs on a television monitor. In some cases, one of the small openings is lengthened to two or three inches to complete the procedure.
