The colon, also known as the large intestine, is an important part of the digestive system. When the colon is diseased, surgery is often necessary to reduce the symptoms and stop the spread of disease. Traditional colon surgery is highly invasive, requiring large incisions and long recovery periods. The surgeons at Texas Laparoscopic Consultants, a partner of Nobilis Health, are able to perform less invasive surgery using advanced laparoscopic technology.
