Álvaro, a patient of our Hospital, sought the assistance of our Emergency Room service due to a sharp abdominal pain and digestive bleeding that caused him to faint. After the assessment and diagnosis carried out by our specialists and by means of a colonoscopy, it was found that the cause of Álvaro’s condition was a tumor located in his right colon, which was considerably damaging his quality of life.
For this reason, Álvaro underwent a laparoscopy procedure that allowed performing a hemicolectomy, which consists in surgically removing part of the colon with the purpose of solvingthe patient’s problem. This surgical intervention was greatly successful thanks to the interdisciplinary work of our gastroenterology specialists.
The patient was discharged two days after the surgery, which represents a significantly shortrecovery time period for this type of pathology. This is only possible due to the efficiency and precision of the laparoscopy procedure, which reduces the hospital stay time and guarantees excellent results.
Álvaro has stated his deepest gratitude to Hospital Pablo Tobón Uribe for the excellent service provided and the swiftness of the assistance given throughout the process. The Hospital with Soul maintains its strong work on striving to achieve the best results for the benefit of the patients, ensuring effective treatments and high-quality assistance.
