This surgical animation is for patient education and describes a laparoscopic colectomy, which is a type of minimally invasive surgery for colon cancer. Laparoscopic colectomy, also called minimally invasive colectomy, involves several small incisions in your abdomen. Instead of a big incision, the surgeon makes a few small cuts (0.5-1 centimeters) in the abdominal cavity to insert a surgical camera and instruments and perform the operation. A slightly bigger incision, about 3.5 centimeters wide, is made to remove the tumor.

When compared to traditional open surgery, laparoscopic colectomy can result in much less pain and swifter recovery. Depending on the procedure, most laparoscopic colectomy patients leave the hospital and return to normal activities more quickly than patients recovering from open surgery.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
