Bowel resection in Germany

Bowel resection is indicated for the treatment of ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, benign and malignant bowel tumors.

This procedure implies removing a segment of the bowel in a few variations:

  • Enterectomy;
  • Segmental enterectomy;
  • Colectomy;
  • Hemicolectomy;
  • Sigmoid colectomy;
  • Right-sided hemicolectomy;
  • Total mesorectal excision in oncologic bowel diseases.

This treatment implies general anesthesia. The doctors in Germany perform any bowel resection by the following steps:

  • Access. The incision is made on the anterior abdominal wall in the projection of the required bowel segment. A doctor moves the abdominal muscles apart and opens the abdominal cavity.
  • To prevent the bowel content from getting into the abdominal cavity, the bowel is tightened by clamps on the both sides from discission.
  • If it is a malignant bowel disease, the doctor excises about 20 cm of healthy tissue from both sides.
  • The ends of the bowel are stitched together by anastamosis.
  • If anastamosis is impossible, the bottom end of the remaining bowel is sutured, while the upper end is put outside the anterior abdominal wall for defecation after bowel disease treatment.

Total mesorectal excision in Friedrichshafen Clinic

Our surgeons in Germany apply this variant of bowel disease treatment in malignant rectum tumors. Such treatment implies removing the entire straight intestine, the surrounding fatty tissue and regional lymph nodes. Friedrichshafen Center in Germany offers the following types of such treatment:

  • Bottom frontal resection. A part of the straight intestine is resected without the anus. The remaining part of the bowel is sutured to the anus - side-to-end anastamosis is made.
  • Colo-anal resection: the entire straight intestine is resected, and the segmented intestine is sutured to the anus.
  • Abdominal resection: the entire straight intestine and anus are resected, while the end of remaining bowel part is put outside of the anterior abdominal wall.

Endoscopic electrocoagulation in bowel diseases treatment

Endoscopic electrocoagulation in Germany is applied for the treatment of diseases like bowel polyps. During endoscopic examination the doctor cuts the polyp base by electrocoagulator and extracts the mass. This treatment method doesn’t require narcosis, and there are no incisions or bleeding.

Minimally invasive surgeries for bowel diseases in Germany

Minimally invasive surgeries in Germany are used for any bowel disease treatment. Such techniques doesn’t require big incisions, 2-6 punctures on the abdominal area is enough for inserting laparoscopic instruments. To create a proper visibility, the abdominal cavity is filled with innocuous gas. A camera is inserted inside the cavity to track the entire gastric surgery process on the screen.

With the newest laparoscopic equipment such bowel disease treatment in Germany provides a lot of advantages, including:

  • Minimal blood loss;
  • Minimal traumatization of healthy tissues;
  • High preciseness of surgical manipulations;
  • Minimal post-operative pains;
  • Less than a week of in-hospital stay;
  • No big cosmetic defects after a surgery.
