As mentioned earlier, laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgery has been approved by the scientific community of the world for the past 15 years and is now a top priority for gastrointestinal cancers, especially colon and rectal cancer.
This type of surgery has been performed for many years by most Iranian surgeons in most hospitals of Tehran and major cities. And the rectum is trying to treat patients in this advanced way in the country.
The benefits of laparoscopic surgery include:
Much less pain after surgery
Much smaller surgical scars (as shown in Figures 1 and 2) compared to open and laparoscopic surgery.
Risk of lower bowel adhesion and bowel obstruction after surgery
Fewer days in hospital
Reduced risk of abdominal hernia
