The patient was treated of dolichosigmoid

Since childhood I suffer from constipation, I have dolichosigma (the bowel is longer than necessary). In recent years, it became very difficult - persistent enemas, laxatives, one time almost did not reach the obstruction. The gastroenterologist said that it is necessary to be operated on and the operation is complicated. My sister works in Spain, she advised me to come to them for treatment.

Operated me in the surgical center ServiDigest (Barcelona). There were no horrors and no large incisions - they were treated with microsurgical methods. Now I feel fine - constipation is no more, there are no scars (thin strips, they are not visible).
