Laparoscopic surgery for cancer of the colon and rectum
One of the most important advances in surgical techniques in recent years has been the development and application of laparoscopic surgery.
Barnaclínic is a general medical center devoted to approaching all types of pathologies, particularly those of high complexity. The centre is recognised as the best Spanish hospital and a point of reference in Europe.
Under the direction of Dr. Antonio Mª de Lacy, Chief of Gastrointestinal Surgery at Hospital Clínic/Barnaclínic Barcelona, the clinic has further enhanced its world-renowned reputation by becoming a pioneering centre for laparoscopic surgery. Dedicated to performing safer and more effective operations through the development and application of minimally invasive and scar-less techniques, Dr de Lacy and his team are at the forefront of surgical excellence.
Since December 2011, Dr de Lacy and his team have performed 14 revolutionary laparoscopic surgeries using High Definition 3D technology developed by Olympus, making the clinic the first in the world to trial the new technology.
Barnaclinic continues to push the boundaries on minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery due to the numerous benefits it passes on to patients, amongst those recognised are:
Reduction in surgery time.
Elimination of the need for large incisions.
Minimisation of possible of scarring.
Reduction in patient recovery time.
Reduction of post-operative complications.
Together these benefits lead to speedier patient recoveries, shorter hospital stays and reduced convalescence.
The clinic applies laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques in surgeries performed to treat many different conditions including those related to Obesity, Cancer and Transplants.
