Steps to take before Anastomosis
Our doctors at Medanta will prepare you for the entire procedure, right from the diagnosis to the post-surgery medicines.
What happens during the procedure?
Anastomosis is conducted under general anaesthesia. A surgical cut is made to reach the organs to be sewn. For example, in the case of bowel surgery, a surgical incision is made around colostomy (the opening of the bowel). The colostomy is then removed, and the opening in the bowel is closed by stitch or staple.
After the procedure
The surgery usually requires a hospital stay of 7-10 days. An endoscope is used by the surgeon to closely monitor the surgery, and do it with better medical precision. Doctors will give antibiotics post the surgery.
