The medical team has resected the entire tumor during a 5-hour surgery, which included the excision of the right side of the colon (a hemicolectomy), the tumor-infiltrating small intestine and lymph nodes, in addition to the complete separation of the tumor from the main blood vessels feeding the intestines and the nearby tissues without any complications. Then the medical team has performed a surgery to reconnect the healthy areas of the small intestine.
