Colorectal surgery is conducted on patients with disorders in the rectum, anus, and/or colon. In other words, colorectal surgery mainly treats the entire gamut of diseases that impact the lower digestive tract. The lower digestive tract includes the colon, which is a hollow tube that runs from the small intestine to the anus. A colon's function is to absorb the water and store the waste products of digestion before they are emptied out. The end part of the colon is the rectum, which includes sphincter muscles to prevent accidental waste release through the anus.
Our Colorectal Surgery Department is a well-established facility with a profound consideration to the well-being of its patient and medical staff. The Department houses renowned colorectal surgeons, equipment that adheres to international standards, and a patient experience like no other!
Regularly seeing a colorectal surgeon puts you at an advantage. While your colorectal surgeon is able to treat a disturbance or an irregularity in the colon, rectum, or anus, the surgeon can also provide you with preventative measures against certain disorders. And just as it would be with other disorders, early detection of any conditions, related to the lower-digestive tract, at an early stage allows for a faster recovery.

Colorectal surgery follows different procedures depending on the type of condition.
Mostly, colorectal surgery includes the following procedures:
In some cases, the colorectal surgeon may need to conduct a strictureplasty, which widens the intestine as opposed to ‘cutting’ a certain portion.
One common procedure is a colostomy. A colostomy requires removing a portion of the colon or rectum with the lymph nodes and then creating an opening in the abdominal wall for the removal of waste. Depending on the condition of the patient and the reason for diverting stool, colostomies may be temporary or permanent.
Laparoscopic surgeries, under the colorectal surgery umbrella, are ideal for some patients, due to their quick recovery time, less postoperative pain, and minimum scarring.
Our treatments at Medcare also include proctology, pelvic floor diseases, and robotic and laparoscopic colorectal surgery for colorectal cancer.
