    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Colorectal Surgery?

    Colorectal surgery includes several surgical procedures that deal with damage to the colon, rectum and anus. This damage can be caused by injuries or disorders that affect the lower region of the body. The minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery (keyhole) procedures are the most commonly used procedures in colorectal surgery. This involves making small cuts (buttonhole) on the abdomen, through which laparoscopic instruments are inserted using advanced imaging guidance.

    When should I get a Colonoscopy?

    Colonoscopy is indicated for patients having symptoms concerning for colorectal cancer or inflammatory bowel disease. Screening colonoscopy is indicated for average risk patients at age 50. If a family member has had colorectal cancer or adenomatous polyps before the age of 60, it is recommended you start screening 10 years before their age at diagnosis. There are certain hereditary cancers that can occur earlier in life and screening recommendations may vary. Discuss these situations with your specialist doctor.
