Dr. David Blumberg, a colorectal surgeon in Pittsburgh has pioneered a novel laparoscopic colon surgery technique. This novel colorectal operation is successful 95-98% in allowing patients with colorectal cancer, diverticulitis, colon polyps, Crohns disease & ulcerative colitis to be cured through tiny band-aid size incisions.

Dr. Blumberg's pioneering work was reported in the journals Surgical Innovations in September 2008 and Surgical Laparoscopic, Endoscopic and Percutaneous Techniques in February and June of this year. This novel laparoscopic colon surgery technique enables patients suffering from colorectal cancer, diverticulitis, polyps, crohns disease & ulcerative colitis to have a 95-98% success rate. This innovative technique, Band-Aid colon surgery, is particularly beneficial for patients with obesity and patients whom had prior abdominal surgery. In these complicated patients, traditional laparoscopic colon surgery has a failure rate of 20-40%. In contrast Band-Aid colon surgery has a 95-98% success rate in these patients with obesity and prior abdominal surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery is a technique that uses a long, thin telescope-like instrument (the laparoscope) attached to a video camera that projects images onto a video monitor. Through 3-4 additional "band-aid" cuts (1-2 inch) in the skin, the surgeon inserts instruments to hold the intestine, remove the diseased segment and reconnect the bowel. The abdomen is additionally insufflated with carbon dioxide to distend the abdomen to give the surgeon "working space" to perform the operation.

While traditional laparoscopic colon surgery is performed only partially laparoscopically, bandaid colon surgery is performed completely laparoscopically. This allows a higher success rate and leaves only bandaid size incisions. Band-aid colon surgery is a revolutionary colorectal surgical technique perfected by Dr. David Blumberg. This laparoscopic colon surgery results in less discomfort, quicker recovery, and improved cosmetic look. It also reduces the recovery time by half and assures successful treatment of patients' illnesses while minimizing the trauma of traditional surgery. Dr. Blumberg's work was initially highlighted by Pittsburgh local news in 2004. (http://www.wpxi.com/health/2964942/detail.html).
