Colorectal surgery

Colorectal surgery

Colorectal surgery is a branch of visceral surgery dealing with the operative treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the rectum and the colon (large intestine). This field has also witnessed a strong development in the direction of keyhole surgery methods, although open surgery continues to be used. There are numerous centres in Austria specialising in minimal invasive operations.

Here too, AFS MEDICAL has been able to build on the cooperation with Austria's leading surgeons, in order to continually document the benefits of reduced port and single port surgery with other scientific data and practical experiences. Below you will find selected operation techniques, in which AFS MEDICAL products are used.
