@lovablesteven Laparoscopic surgery generally has a quicker recovery time, so that would be a good thing.

As experience is very important, did he indicate how many of these procedures he has performed in the past?

Get as many opinions as you can. I agree with the other poster who suggested finding out all you can about the surgeon's and GI's experiences with your condition. Go to the best ones you can find. I had an emergency resection for a different reason, but from my experience, it has been a hard recovery and is life altering. Of course, you also don't want to wait until it's an emergency so it sounds like a delicate balance. Best of luck to you.
