Colorectal surgery is a specialized field of surgery that involves the treatment of conditions that affect the colon, rectum, and anus.
A visit with a colorectal surgeon does not always result in surgery.
Our specialist will assess your medical history, symptoms and signs to determine the most appropriate treatment you need.
Conditions We Treat
What is Colorectal Surgery for?
Colorectal surgery is done to treat many diseases of the lower digestive tract. It involves various surgical procedures performed on the colon, rectum, and anus. When these parts of your body suffer from conditions like colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease), diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic constipation or rectal prolapse, colorectal surgery often becomes necessary.
These procedures involve either repairing or removing the diseased part of the lower intestine and may then require reconstructing the lower intestinal tract. In the case of colorectal cancer, the growth or tumor must be removed and this can now be done using keyhole (laparoscopic or robotic) procedures.
At Mark Wong Surgery, our specialist trained in these techniques and will be able to recommend the most suitable procedure for your condition.
