Laparoscopic or Robotic Surgery for Bowel Cancer or Diverticular Disease
This is a picture following lower large bowel keyhole resection for advanced colo-rectal cancer with liver and lung spreading. The patient is only 39 year old and in spite of the advanced stage of the cancer lived another six years following this surgery. The surgery was performed laparoscopically removing the primary cancer completely, with lymph-node clearance and intra-corporeal anastomosis and no need of colostomy or ileostomy.
This is a picture two weeks after keyhole surgery for lower large bowel cancer. The surgery was performed laparoscopically through several small skin incisions as seen above with complete removal of cancer, lymph-node clearance and intra-corporeal anastomosis and without need of ileostomy. The patient was 79 year old at the time and now, several years after surgery he is cured from cancer.
