Over the years, the range of treatable abdominal surgical conditions and the patient survival rate have both increased significantly.
Approximately 150 colic operations are performed on patients admitted to our hospital every year, of which 80% currently are able to be discharged from the hospital following surgery and successful post-operative treatment.
The post-operative care patients receive is equally as important as the corrective surgery. We have a large team of experienced surgical and nursing staff, which is available to deal with the management and monitoring of patients around the clock. Following major intestinal surgery, continuous monitoring and improved post-operative medical regimes (particularly in the proactive administration of prokinetic drugs, which encourage early return to normal intestinal motility) are fundamental to improved survival rates.
