Colon and Small Bowel Surgery 

More than 600,000 bowel surgeries are performed each year in the United States. Our surgeons have performed hundreds of colon and small bowel surgeries with excellent outcomes, most of which are performed with a minimally invasive approach.

Intestinal resection is a surgical procedure to remove a portion of your small or large intestine that is affected by disease or cancer.

During the surgery, the diseased section of your intestine is removed and the two healthy ends are joined together. Depending on which portion of the bowel is diseased and how healthy the rest of the intestine is, the surgeon may need to do a colostomy or ileostomy to allow the unhealthy portion of the bowel to heal. Most of the time, the colostomy or ileostomy is temporary and can be reversed after such time that the reconnection is safe and successful.

This procedure is commonly performed by a minimally invasive approach with a short hospital stay and a quick return to normal daily function.
