Incisionless Transanal Surgery
Incisionless transanal surgery is one of a growing number of procedures to use the body’s natural orifices as an entry point, thus eliminating the need for traditional incisions.
Incisionless transanal surgery involves inserting an endoscope (a thin, flexible tube) in the anus and advancing it through the rectum and colon so surgeons can access and cut out polyps or a portion of the colon.
Minimally invasive procedures such as incisionless transanal surgery have been shown to offer an array of potential benefits, including greater surgical precision, better outcomes, a shorter recovery time, shorter hospital stay and less pain.
Conditions this treatment is offered for:
- Rectal polyps
