Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TEMS)

Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEMS): is a minimally invasive approach to removal of certain rectal cancers and tumors using specialized laparoscopic equipment through the anus rather than requiring a large incision through the abdomen. TEMS can also be used to repair certain fistulas (even to the bladder or vagina), or to even excise recurrent tumors at the site of a previous anastomosis.
