Baxter understands that colorectal teams are faced with ever-increasing complexities—from preventing post-operative leakage to reducing the risk of surgical site infections. Baxter's haemostat, sealant and tissue repair products were created to work across procedures to address those issues that stand in the way of patient healing.

Key Procedures

Each colorectal procedure provides unique challenges that can cause complications for the healing process. Here are just a few examples.
