If you are diagnosed with colon cancer, you might need surgery. And if you do, it’s important to understand what to expect before, during and after the surgery.
Mercy surgeons specialize in removing polyps and tumors. When necessary, they can even remove part of the colon due to cancer. Our surgeons are skilled in using the latest surgical procedures and techniques such as minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery and endoscopic surgery.
Together with your doctor, you will discuss your surgery and decide on a treatment plan that’s right for you. You will discuss your hospital stay and your recovery time, and how soon you’ll be able to return to work and resume normal activities.
When you rely on the team of cancer specialists at Mercy, you’ll find complete, compassionate support every step of the way. From diagnosis to surgery to follow up, we will provide you with the best care possible.
