Colorectal Surgery - Why You Must Consider It?

Colorectal Surgery - Why You Must Consider It?

The field of medicine has evolved to a considerable extent that most health issues can be treated using drugs and minimally invasive procedures. Still, there are circumstances wherein surgical intervention is the best possible course of treatment where the pros outweigh the cons and prove to be highly beneficial to the patients.

One such situation is when a patient is suffering from colorectal disorders such abnormal cracks and tears in the anus to fecal incontinence, congenital disabilities in colon or anus, rectal or colon cancers or rectal or anal prolapse and does not respond to medication. This is when colorectal surgery, once known as proctology, becomes essential. It is a field of medicine that refers to the various surgical procedures that are performed to treat such disorders in the colon, anus, and rectum.

Here are few more compelling reasons why the surgery is the best possible solution in this scenario.

  • Availability of various types: Colorectal surgery doesn't refer to one single surgical technique, but a collection of different surgical methods that can offer relief from various colorectal conditions. Some of the common colorectal surgical methods are colectomy, endoscopic surgery, colostomy, rectopexy, IBD surgery and hemorrhoidectomy which can effectively deal with the colorectal issues.
  • Complete relief: In case of many colorectal conditions such as fissures, piles, and fistula, medications or lifestyle changes fail to offer a complete relief from the discomfort. They tend to come back again, making surgical removal the only option for complete relief. Similarly, in colon cancer also, it is through colorectal surgery that the disease can be cured.
  • Lesser downtime: Depending on the type of colorectal surgery performed, there are different recovery time required. Though for traditional open colorectal surgeries, such as inflammatory bowel disease surgery, the recovery time may be weeks, for laparoscopic colorectal surgeries the downtime is considerably lesser as only ‘keyhole' like cuts are made. A laparoscopic colorectal surgery means lesser hospital stay as well as less pain, less scarring and quicker getting back to normal life.
  • Various conditions can be treated: Whatever be the state of the colon, small bowel, anus, and rectum and be it malignant or benign, the problem can be addressed through either laparoscopic and open colorectal surgical techniques as applicable. From anorectal disorders like an abscess, cancer, fissure, fistula, haemorrhoids, polyps, stenosis to rectal, etc. and colon disorders like colorectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, diverticular disease, bowel obstruction, hereditary non-polyposis, etc. can be treated through colorectal surgery. So, as can be noted, because of the numerous benefits it offers, colorectal surgery is the preferred treatment option when it comes to the colorectal disorders especially when medications are not helpful. Your gastrointestinal surgeon would decide on the course of treatment plan depending on your condition and proceed accordingly.

I am 21 yo female. I had a lateral internal sphincterotomy on 13th of june. Was dealing with chronic anal fissure since many years. Opted for a surgery and got my external piles removed as well. I am on a high fiber diet and lots of fluids and on discharge medications as well. I'm taking duphalac as laxative but still having pain while going for bowel movement. Also I can still see a lil pile at the opening of ano. I'm wondering if the piles were not removed properly or they are scars from the surgery. Should I get it checked again?

The anal fissure will take time to heal even after a sphincetrotomy. You should continue medications as advised and the fissure will take at least 2-3 weeks (reasonable expectation. Sometimes skin tags do form outside the anal opening which is acceptable. However if you have doubts you should visit the operating surgeon once again.

If piles are troublesome then you should get operated. Thyroid should not be a problem for the same. Please get examined by a general/GI Surgeon for confirmation of diagnosis and further treatment. Usually does not go away on its own. For early piles one can wait and may resolve with sclerotherapy/banding but advances case require surgery. Early hemorrhoids can be treated by banding / sclerotherapy. For advanced cases staplers hemorrhoidectomy is recommended. Not aware of any non- Surgical treatment for advanced piles. Surgical treatment however is very effective. Kindly get examined by a general/GI Surgeon to decide on mode of treatment. **For complete evaluation and treatment, Kindly visit the doctor in person with all available reports. *This is just an preliminary opinion not to be used for medico-legal purpose.

Crohn's Disease - How Surgical Management Can Help?

Crohn's Disease - How Surgical Management Can Help?

Life can be tough when living with Crohn’s disease as it is a chronic condition. Especially with the disease is marked by phases of relapse and remission, it requires a long-term management to keep the symptoms in check. Though the flare-ups can be typically contained using medications, some of the patients with severe symptoms or complications arising from the illness would require surgery.

Before we proceed with the surgical management of the disease, it is essential to understand what Crohn’s disease is in case you are not aware of it. It is a chronic illness in which the intestine or the bowel have become inflamed or marked with ulcers and sores and is a part of disorders collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease(IBD).

When does Crohn’s disease require surgery?
Typically, patients who are suffering from complications of Crohn’s Disease may require surgery. This may include the formation of a scar that is causing the bowel to narrow down and leading to obstructions, extensive bleeding from the intestine, perforation in the bowel wall or the formation of fistula or abscess. The fistula may be formed in the connecting area between two body parts that do not meet. Also, a condition known as toxic megacolon where the large intestine or the colon becomes severely stretched out causing the toxins to spread all through the blood requires surgical intervention.
What are the different surgical options available for Crohn’s disease?

The surgery chosen for Crohn’s disease is dependent on various factors such as where the disease has affected, how severe the disease is and most importantly what complication will be treated by the surgery. Here are some of the types of surgeries done for treating Crohn’s disease:

  1. Strictureplasty: If the small intestine is affected by the disease, it may show up in the alternating areas of the bowel. Strictureplasty is a surgical way of widening the narrow area of the small intestine into a portion which has been affected by the disease. It doesn’t involve removal of the intestine.
  2. Resection: This is yet another surgical process where the affected part of the intestine is removed. It may be required when the stricture has become elongated. The removal of the diseased portion of the intestine may be able to offer some relief from the symptoms.
  3. Colectomy: This surgery refers to the removal of the entire colon, and it is done when the disease is severe and extensive.
  4. Proctocolectomy: When both rectum and colon are affected, both these parts are removed by a process called proctocolectomy. When this process becomes necessary, the waste materials drain into the bag which is emptied every day.

Since, the surgical intervention aims to manage the disease, your doctor would be able to recommend the most suitable option as per your condition.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Treating GERD: 5 Surgery Options That Can Help!

Treating GERD: 5 Surgery Options That Can Help!

Hectic lifestyle, unhealthy food habits, poor bowel movements, and stress can all add up to one condition called the GERD. Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD refers to a particular type of digestive disease, and mainly affects the LES or lower esophageal sphincter, which is a muscle ring between the stomach and the esophagus resulting in the symptoms such as burning sensation in the chest or difficulty in swallowing.

Treatment options
While the moderate or mild GERD can usually be treated with healthy lifestyle changes, diet, and medications, when the condition gets severe, surgery becomes the only option to prevent the issue from deteriorating further. Here are some of the common surgical options available for treating GERD:

  1. Fundoplication: This surgical procedure is the most common and standard surgical option for treating GERD. It focuses on tightening and reinforcing the LES by wrapping the upper portion of the stomach around the outer side of the lower esophagus which strengthens the sphincter.
  2. Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication: Transoral incisionless fundoplication or TIF is another surgical procedure available for treating GERD and can be performed when an open fundoplication cannot be performed. It is performed by creating a barrier between the esophagus and the stomach which prevents the stomach acid from reflux or going backwards.
  3. Stretta: This surgical procedure is performed as an outpatient option using an endoscope. Here, a flexible tube is passed into the esophagus where the electrode present at the tip of the tube creates tiny cuts on the esophagus by heating the esophageal tissues. As a result, the scar tissues formed, block the nerves that are responsible for acid reflux.
  4. Bard EndoCinch System: This surgical procedure also uses an endoscope to create stitches to make pleats in the lower esophageal sphincter, which strengthens the LES. However, this surgical treatment option is not as common as other GERD treating procedures.
  5. Linx Surgery: In Linx surgery, a special device called Linx, a ring containing microbeads of magnetic titanium, is wrapped around the sphincter to make it strong. As the beads are magnetized, they help in keeping the opening between the esophagus and stomach closed, while letting the food pass normally.

Recovery
As long as the surgical option is laparoscopy, they are the least time-consuming as well as less painful with lesser downtime, but may not be ideal for everyone. When it comes to traditional surgical treatment options like fundoplication, it takes around minimum six weeks to resume the daily activities. However, for laparoscopic fundoplication, the downtime is one or two weeks. Linx surgery is a minimally invasive surgical option and therefore, the recovery time is shorter than other traditional surgeries for treating GERD. Depending on the patient's health conditions and response to surgery, the recovery time may vary for each surgical treatment options for GERD.
