Abdomen & Intestine Surgery in Austin

Capital Surgeons Group physicians address abdominal pain and conditions affecting all the organs in the abdominal region and take a minimally invasive approach to abdominal and intestine surgeries whenever it is best for the patient.

  • Gallbladder surgery
  • Colon & rectum (colorectal surgery)
  • Appendix
  • Spleen surgery
  • Adrenal gland
  • Stomach, abdominal pain
  • Pancreas

Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery is a specialized field that focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the colon, rectum, and anus. It encompasses a range of surgical procedures aimed at treating both benign and malignant (cancerous) gastrointestinal tract diseases.

Some common conditions that may require colorectal surgery include:

  • Colorectal cancer: Surgery is often the primary treatment for colorectal cancer. It involves removing the tumor and nearby lymph nodes, and in some cases, a portion of the colon or rectum may need to be removed.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): Surgery may be necessary for individuals with severe cases of Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis that do not respond to other treatments. Surgical options can include removing the affected portion of the intestine, creating an ostomy (an opening on the abdomen for waste removal), or reconstructing the intestines.
  • Diverticular disease: When diverticula (small pouches) in the colon become infected or inflamed, surgery may be required to remove the affected portion of the colon. This condition is known as diverticulitis.
  • Rectal prolapse: Colorectal surgery can be performed to repair a condition in which the rectum protrudes through the anus.
  • Anal conditions: Conditions like anal fissures, fistulas, or hemorrhoids may require surgical intervention if they do not respond to conservative treatments.

Colorectal surgery can be performed using traditional open surgery or minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopic or robotic-assisted surgery. Minimally invasive approaches often result in smaller incisions, less pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery compared to open surgery.

It’s important to note that the specific surgical approach and treatment plan will depend on the individual’s condition, the extent of the disease, and the healthcare team’s recommendations.
