What Is a Bowel Obstruction?

A bowel obstruction is any material that blocks the small or large intestine and keeps the digestive system from flowing. This material can be feces, cancer, a polyp, an abscess, or a twist in the intestine. Symptoms of a bowel obstruction include abdominal pain, bloating, the inability to pass gas or stool, nausea, and vomiting. Bowel obstruction surgery involves removing the blockage and repairing any damage the blockage might have caused. This condition can be life-threatening and may require immediate surgery. The experienced general surgeons at Sierra Pacific Surgical have a vast amount of expertise in performing bowel obstruction surgery for Northern California patients. For more on this advanced type of care, please contact our Folsom or Roseville, CA office to set up a treatment consultation.

How is Bowel Obstruction Surgery Performed?

The general surgeons at Sierra Pacific Surgical strive to take a minimally invasive approach to bowel obstruction surgery whenever possible. In this version of the surgery, small incisions are made in the abdomen and a laparoscope is inserted into the intestine to help guide our surgeons. Special instruments are then used to clear the obstruction. If there is damage to any part of the bowels, our team will also either repair or remove the damaged portions of tissue. Depending on the nature of the obstruction, an open surgical approach may be required to address the condition.
