Colorectal surgery is a major surgery that is made safer with the care, perseverance and professionalism of our medical team. However, the best results come with your understanding and your preparation in your own treatment.
This handbook will help you understand and prepare you for your surgery. Doctors and nurses will explain the procedures to you, explaining how you can play a role in your own healing and what you can expect while in the hospital. We hope you are better prepared, both physically and mentally, for your next adventure.
- The checkboxes show the important parts of your surgery.
