Benign and malignant lesion in found in the colon and/or rectum, may eventually require a surgical intervention. Minimally invasive approach, wether conventional laparoscopy, or Single Port approach, represent the best option for most cases, allowing for a faster recovery and less postoperative pain.

Bening problems that may need a surgical procedure include Inflamatory bowel disease( Cronh´s disease, ulcerative colitis) as wel as diverticular disease of the colon.

Colonic and rectal carcinoma are the most frequent malignant disease that may requiere a surgical intervention.

 Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) appears as a great alternative in the approach of benign rectal tumors, non resectable by endoscopy, as well as early stage malignant rectal tumors
