Brief Summary:
This study aims to compare the results of colonic surgery performed by single and multiport laparoscopy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colonic Neoplasms Crohn's Disease Diverticulitis Procedure: single port surgery Procedure: Multiport surgery Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The aim of this study is to compare surgical results of colonic resection performed by single port and multiport laparoscopic approaches. Primary endpoint is the length of postoperative hospital stay. Secondary endpoints include postoperative mortality, postoperative morbidity, conversion rates, postoperative recovery, aesthetic results, postoperative pain, and costs
