What is Colorectal Surgery
Colorectal Surgeons, such as SGC’s Dr. Rohan Gett differ from Gastroenterologists in the way a procedure is performed. A Gastroenterologist performs a procedure through scopes (a long robotic tube) inserted through the mouth/throat or anus – where a surgeon generally makes an incision to access the affected area. A Colorectal Surgeon may also use a scope to perform some procedures. Given Colorectal Surgery allows access via incisions, more complex procedures can be performed and they work closely with the Gastroenterologist to provide the best treatment options for you.
Dr. Gett is highly skilled in Laparoscopic Surgery, which means the incision is very small, such as entry to the body via the belly button, leaving little to no scarring after the procedure.
