Discussing symptoms and medical history with a doctor may make some patients feel uncomfortable. When colon conditions are involved, many feel an added degree of sensitivity. However, colon conditions negatively impact health, may cause a number of uncomfortable side effects, and often lead to more serious complications. For these reasons, it is vital that these conditions be treated in a timely manner. Familial adenomatous polyposis, also known as FAP, is a rare genetic condition that affects the colon, and can lead to a number of complications, if left untreated. The primary risk of FAP is the development of colon cancer. In order to avoid this risk, as well as the uncomfortable side effects that are likely to develop as this condition progresses, it is important to seek medical treatment.
At the Laparoscopic Surgical Center of New York, our team of doctors offers treatment for a variety of colon conditions, including FAP. We take a conservative approach to these treatments, offering minimally invasive surgical procedures that can effectively improve colon health while minimizing recovery time. When seeking treatment for familial polyposis, our New York, NY patients should consider the benefits of laparoscopic surgery.
The team at Laparoscopic Surgical Center of New York offers excellent treatment of stomach and bowel disorders that affect people's overall health and wellness. This includes treatment of serious colon conditions and rectal problems, including obstructions and more severe problems.
We'd like to use this post to consider a type of obstruction known as volvulus, which can start as a painful case of constipation but then lead to serious issues with overall wellness.
Volvulus refers to a malrotation of part of the intestine, leading to twisting of the lower bowel or colon. This is a potential cause of bowel obstruction. One of the more well-known and most common forms of volvulus is sigmoid colon volvulus, a condition common in Asia and India due to their high-fiber diet, and also common in Peru and Bolivia because of high altitude.
The team at the Laparoscopic Surgical Center of New York is proud to offer some of the safest and most effective minimally invasive treatments available today. By performing state-of-the-art surgery using laparoscopic techniques, patients are able to undergo advanced surgical procedures and recovery much faster than before.
