Manhattan Colorectal Surgeons
Laparoscopic procedures are technologically advanced medical treatments
that can help with a variety of abdominal and colorectal disorders. At
Manhattan Surgical Associates, our skilled surgeons are dedicated to performing
the latest procedures and guiding you through the entire process.
Typical Diagnoses & Treatments
Based upon your age and medical history, you may be asked to have blood
tests, an electrocardiogram, and a chest X-ray prior to your procedure.
In addition, a physical examination by your primary care physician or
a specialist, such as a cardiologist, may be requested. The need for this
pre-testing will be determined by your surgeon and is individualized for
each of our patients.
In preparation for your anorectal procedure, you will be asked to avoid
eating or drinking after midnight the evening prior to the procedure.
Ask your doctor whether or not to take your prescription medications the
morning of the procedure. The need to take these medications is individualized
for each patient. In addition, you may be asked to take a bowel preparation
the day prior to your surgery. The need for a bowel preparation and the
specific type of preparation used will be individualized for each patient.
