Why Choose Florida Hospital? Adhesiolysis of Adhesions
Past surgical procedures may cause scar tissue known as adhesions to form virtually anywhere inside the body following surgery. This scar tissue can link two membranes together, which may disrupt normal function, create chronic pain, discomfort, and intestinal blockage. Lysis of adhesions is a surgical procedure that removes this soft scar tissue to treat a complication or to prevent a future problem involving two intersecting muscles, tissues, joints, tendons, and/or organs. If the intestines get stuck together, a patient may develop a bowel obstruction that will require immediate emergency treatment. Doctors at Florida Hospital are specialized in performing lysis of adhesions to remove this scar tissue using state-of-art surgical devices.
