What is Colorectal Surgery?

Colorectal surgery is the use of surgical procedures for the diagnosis and/or treatment of disorders and abnormalities of the anus, rectum and colon. These disorders can include cancer, faecal incontinence and haemorrhoids.

Colorectal surgery is performed to repair damage to the colon, rectum, and anus, caused by diseases of the lower digestive tract, such as cancer, diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease). Injury, obstruction, and ischemia (compromised blood supply) may require bowel surgery. Masses and scar tissue can grow within the rectum, causing blockages that prevent normal elimination of feces. Other diseases such as diverticulitis and ulcerative colitis can cause perforations in the rectum. Surgical removal of the damaged area or areas can return normal bowel function.

How is the Procedure Performed?

Colorectal surgical procedures vary widely in terms of technique, equipment, approach, and objective.


Laparoscopic surgery for colorectal diseases and conditions is one of the more modern approaches to surgical treatment. laparoscopic surgery only requires a significantly smaller incision in the abdomen to perform the same procedure with the same results. Some types of laparoscopic surgery can also allow the surgeon to insert a hand directly in the abdominal cavity while being assisted by a laparoscope for precision. Laparoscopy also involves the use of carbon dioxide to lift the abdominal wall so the surgeon can access the site of the tumour or abnormal growth or tissue.
