Small Bowel Resection
If you are suffering from a condition that requires the removal of a section of your small bowel, a resection surgery is an appropriate solution. This is usually because there is a blockage or disease affecting the small bowel.
Another name for the small bowel is the small intestine. This is where the majority of digestion takes place. In order to perform a small bowel resection, Dr. Danny Shouhed and his team will need to use general anesthesia. You will remain unconscious throughout this colon & appendix procedure and will not feel any pain.
There are two common methodologies for performing a small bowel resection. A laparoscopic procedure is a minimally invasive option. However, in some cases, patients may need open surgery to successfully remove the damaged section of the small bowel.
