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
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.
