    What you need to know about Colectomy in South Korea

    Surgery to remove the left side of the colon is called a left hemi colectomy.

    Colectomy is a surgical procedure carried out to remove part or all of the colon (also known as the large intestine – a long tube-like organ located at the end of the digestive tract). The procedure is necessary to treat or prevent diseases affecting your colon. There are four main types of colectomy: total colectomy (the entire colon is removed), partial colectomy (part of the colon is removed), hemicolectomy (the right or left portion of the colon is removed), and proctocolectomy (the colon and the rectum are removed).

    What does a Colectomy Procedure Involve?

    Colectomy can be performed with two different methods: open colectomy and laparoscopic colectomy, both are carried out under general anesthetic. Open surgery involves creating a large incision in your abdomen to access the colon, then the colon is cut out or a part of it is removed using surgical tools. If you have a laparoscopic colectomy, your surgeon makes small incisions in your abdomen to insert a tiny camera through one incision and surgical instruments through the other incisions.

    You are required to stay in the hospital until you regain bowel function, which usually takes two to seven days. after you’re discharged, plan to stay in South Korea for 7 more days as your doctor will schedule follow-up checkups to monitor your condition and remove your stitches.
