Open Total Colectomy

David Berger, MD
Massachusetts General Hospital

A C6 quadriplegic is found to have cancer that appears to be in the distal transverse colon by the splenic flexure. While Dr. David Berger performs an open total colectomy mainly to remove the tumor, he also does a colostomy with the hope of improving the patient’s quality of life.
