Laparoscopic resection surgery of the right colon with primary anastomosis by Dr. Iraniha
This video clip demonstrates my technique for laparoscopic surgery resection of the right colon with primary anastomosis. This patient presented with abdominal pain and anemia and underwent a colonoscopy and found to have a right colon mass suspicious for cancer. The mass was marked with blue dye by the gastroenterologist during the colonoscopy for easy recognition of the tumor during the surgery. Subsequently, patient underwent a laparoscopic resection of the right colon with intracorporeal technique. Intracorporeal anastomosis means creating a connection between two loops of intestine inside the abdominal cavity, using laparoscopic or robotic surgery instruments. This complex technique minimizes the manipulation of the bowel and therefore decreases the trauma to the intestine which reflects positively on the postoperative recovery. At the end of the procedure the resected right colon was removed through 4 cm incision around the umbilicus. The final pathology showed negative margins with adequate resection of lymph nodes. Minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery in Orange County, was a revolution in our surgical era. It has allowed the surgeon to perform difficult tasks through small incisions and therefore decrease the trauma to the patient and minimize the postoperative pain, improve the postoperative recovery, shorten the hospital stay and lower the postoperative complications. At Surgical Oasis Institute, we have expertise in all available surgical techniques for colon cancer surgery and a comprehensive examination and surgical discussion would be provided prior to the surgery to customize the best surgical option for each patient.
