Reasons for Procedure

This surgery is performed to treat a variety of conditions, including the following:

  • Colorectal cancer
  • Diverticular disease —small pouches form in the wall of the colon
  • Inflammatory intestinal diseases (eg, colitis , Crohn’s disease )
  • Intestinal blockage
  • Trauma to the intestine
  • Precancerous polyps, especially those seen in familial polyposis
  • A hole in the bowel wall or dead piece of bowel
  • Bleeding from the colon

For colon cancer, the goal is to remove all of the cancer. If you have a precancerous condition, then you may have prevented the development of cancer. If you had surgery due to other conditions, a successful operation will alleviate or improve your symptoms.
