Colorectal Pelvic Surgery

Colorectal Surgery encompasses treatment of a wide variety of disorders including cancers of small intestine, appendix, colon, rectum and anal canal. It also included management of other vast variety of cancers of the pelvis, including gynaecology cancers and abdominal sarcoma’s, a variety of cancer which is largely amenable to surgery.

Apart from cancers there are many more commonly occurring diseases handled by colorectal surgeons including reconstruction of anal and vaginal areas, disfigured because of trauma or surgery, restoring continence, treatment of piles or hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease, Radiation proctitis, hernias and gallstones etc

A Colorectal Surgeon is a surgeon who specialises in the management of disorders of the small bowel, colon, rectum and anus and other areas of the pelvis. This includes both benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) diseases.

In particular colorectal surgeons have been specifically trained in the diagnosis and treatment of GI Cancers. Rectal cancer treatment requires specialised skills to remove the rectum and preserve sphincters to enable the patient to pass stools through  the normal route. Use of laparoscopic and robotic surgery in malignancies is their forte.
