Familial Polyposis Coli is one of the most vicious genetic diseases, as polyps form in the large intestine, and by the time the patient reaches the age of forty turn into cancerous tumors.
In this case, the patient suffered from Familial Polyposis Coli and was expected to develop colorectal cancer, which is life-threatening.
So, Dr. Islam Khaled, Head of the General Surgery Department at Saudi German Hospital, Jeddah Branch, after examining and evaluating the condition, decided that the best treatment plan was laparoscopic removal of the entire colon and rectum, which will protect the patient from the risk of inevitable cancer and ensure his recovery in an appropriate period.
The surgery was performed efficiently and accurately by Dr. Islam, who followed up with the patient closely throughout his recovery period.
Therefore, We always recommend a routine colonoscopy for early detection of any polyps and the prevention of life-threatening diseases.
Saudi German Hospital believes in the importance of providing integrated healthcare services to our patients.
