Laparoscopic surgery has been established as a safe, effective approach in the management of colorectal disease. Compared with open surgery, laparoscopy is associated with decreased postoperative analgesia requirements, faster return of bowel function and resumption of oral intake, shorter hospital stay, and better cosmetic repair. Now in its Second Edition, Operative Techniques In Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery gives surgeons the learning tools they need to understand and successfully incorporate laparoscopic colorectal surgery into their practice. This edition goes to great lengths to cover every aspect of each procedure in great detail—including tips for avoiding potential pitfalls. This book will be a useful resource for residents, fellows in training, and surgeons who are either attending courses in laparoscopic colorectal surgery or are at an early stage of integrating this technique into their practice.
