Keyhole surgery for bowel cancer


Most bowel cancers and bowel problems can be treated with keyhole surgery. Keyhole surgery for bowel cancer is now the standard treatment. In fact, most conditions involving the belly can be treated with keyhole surgery. This is not just for cancers of the bowel but everything from adrenal gland, stomach, spleen, pancreas can be removed by keyhole surgery. Weight loss surgery including lap bands, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass is usually done with keyhole surgery.

Unless it is left too late. The picture above shows someone’s backside. The big pink ugly thing in between the butt cheeks is actually a large bowel cancer which has grown through the back passage after being neglected for many months. This situation is not curable sadly.
