Colo-Rectal

Colon disorders

The most common treat for colon cancer is surgery. If the cancer is found early, it can be removed with a colonoscope, but the most common procedure is the colon resection, where the tumor is removed, then the colon is reconnected so it’s in one piece.

Inflammation

Inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease, can be debilitating and require surgery. A variety of procedures offered at Crescent City Surgical Centre can be used to fix this, including colostomy and ileostomy.

Fissure/fistula related procedures

An anal fissure is a small tear in the lining of the anus and is often caused by constipation, but can also be caused by severe diarrhea or inflammation. A fistula is a tiny channel or tract that develops due to inflammation or infection or certain illnesses like Crohn’s Disease. Surgeries for both ailments can be done quickly and usually only involve a brief recovery period.
