Decision regarding surgical intervention is always taken together by surgeons and therapists. Particular attention is paid to the postoperative stage. In this phase, the latest scientific advances are being used to minimize the patient's stay in the hospital. Many surgical traditions, such as the use of drains, stomach probes or urinary catheters, are minimized.

Recovery programs are designed in such ways to avoid use of special diets or complete withdrawal from certain products. To alleviate the patient's condition, optimal anesthesia is given.
