General Information:

 

Colonoscopy

 

A colonoscopy is the best tool available to evaluate the entire colon and rectum.  The colonoscope is a long, flexible, fiberoptic tube that is able to be navigated through the colon to visualize the entire surface of the large intestine. This procedure is used to diagnose and treat many different diseases. Regular colonoscopy screening can prevent most colon cancers.

 

Laparoscopic Colon Surgery/Robotic Surgery/Minimally Invasive Intestinal Surgery

 

Laparoscopic and robotic techniques are available for treatment of many problems affecting the colon and rectum. With minimally invasive surgery, smaller incisions may allow for less postoperative pain and faster recovery. All of our surgeons have advanced skills in these techniques, including the newest robotic platform, the Da Vinci Xi Surgical system. http://pslmc.com/service/center-for-robotic-surgery

 

Screening and Surveillance for Colon Cancer

 

Colon cancer is the third most common internal cancer. Almost all colon cancers can be prevented. Our office offers all methods of evaluation to prevent colon cancer. In the absence of symptoms, average risk patients should begin colon cancer screening at the age of 50. All symptoms of the bowel should be evaluated when they occur. High risk patients are recommended to have a colonoscopy at a younger age.

 

Evaluation & Treatment of Fecal Incontinence

 

Incontinence (leakage) of stool can significantly alter one’s life. Drs. Bertelson, Strutt and Brown offer comprehensive evaluation and diagnostic work-up for the causes of fecal leakage/incontinence. We collaborate with Gastroenterology, Urogynecology, Ob/Gyn, Radiology, Urology, and Physical Therapy, creating a virtual center that provides customized care to patients with disorders of the pelvic floor. This integrated team strategy provides patients with a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan, including surgical and nonsurgical options. We also perform the newest state of the art therapeutic option: sacral nerve stimulation.

 

Colostomy Sparing Surgery

 

With newer technology and greater surgical experience, colostomy (bag appliance) is rarely required after bowel resection surgery. Even low rectal lesions can be removed and reconnected with good function and regular bowel movements.

 

Ultrasound Staging of Rectal Cancer

 

Rectal cancer has many ways of being treated, from local treatments to major abdominal surgery. 3D Ultrasound staging through our office can help determine an appropriate treatment plan.
