Surgical Options for Colectomy

“When you have a colectomy,” said Dr. Jinnie A. BruceGeneral Surgeon at ARC Cedar Park Medical Plaza, ARC Round Rock, and ARC Far West Medical Tower, “There are two surgical options; open surgery or laparoscopic surgery.”

Dr. Bruce explained the difference in this recent podcast of the ARC Healthcare Minute. “Open surgery is done through a long incision on your belly. Laparoscopic surgery is done with small incisions and is associated with less pain and a faster recovery time.”
