Colon and rectum refer to the large intestine or bowel. It is a hollow tube about 5-6 feet long. The colon and rectum are the parts of the lower digestive tract running from the small intestine to the anus. The function of this tube is to absorb the water and store the waste products of the body and then excretes it as a part of the digestion process.
Colorectal surgery includes colectomy which removes all parts of the large intestine which is further of three types
Colostomy– in this type of surgery, the surgeon creates a hole in the abdominal wall and pulls one end of the colon through the opening. A colostomy is further of two types
Rectopexy– It is a surgical procedure to treat rectal prolapse to remove all or part of a diseased organ or tissue. It includes further four types of resection
Abdominoperineal resection (Rectal) – used to treat anal and distal rectal cancer.
Lower anterior resection – In this surgery, part of the rectum is removed and after that, it is anastomosed.
