When people think of colorectal surgical treatments, their first thought often goes to invasive surgery. These days, vast advancements have been made in minimally-invasive procedures that can be used to treat a variety of colorectal conditions and help patients return to more normal lives much sooner than they would have with older traditional treatments.
At Huntington Colorectal Surgeons, we are a leading colorectal and gastrointestinal treatment facility in Pasadena, California. In 2008, Dr. Howard Kaufman was the first surgeon in California to remove part of the colon through a single incision in the belly button. Since that time, we have been early adopters in minimally invasive robotic techniques for colon and rectal surgery and treat all of our patients using Enhanced Recovery Pathways, that are associated with less pain and need for opiates, earlier return to eating, earlier discharge from hospital, faster recovery at home, and faster return to normal activities.
Our staff of leading colorectal surgeons like Dr. Howard Kaufman, Dr, Gabriel Akopian, and Dr. Juliane Golan, have developed novel treatment techniques that utilize small incisions, minimize your discomfort, and facilitate faster healing. Our priority is to ensure that no unnecessary diagnostic and surgical tools, technology, and chemicals are introduced into your body and that you benefit from premium-quality care.
