Treatments for Colorectal Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Treatments for colorectal cancer include surgical procedures, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Early cancer or polyps may be removed during a colonoscopy. During this procedure, a flexible tube will be inserted through your anus. In most cases, if a polyp is found, it will be removed. If a small area of cancer is found, it will be removed. For larger areas of cancer, you may need to have a surgical procedure to remove the affected part of your large intestine. Your surgeon may remove part of your colon, or part, or all of your rectum. Nearby tissue, such as lymph nodes may also be removed to see if cancer has spread there. In most cases, the remaining ends of your large intestine will be reattached. But, sometimes the surgeon will not attach the remaining ends right away. Instead, a procedure may be done to attach the top end of your large intestine to an opening in the skin of your abdomen and the bottom end will be closed with staples or sutures. This new opening in the skin allows solid waste to empty into an attached bag. Usually, the opening is temporary. If temporary, the ends of your large intestine will be reconnected in a later procedure. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or both may also be recommended, either before or after a surgical procedure. Chemotherapy uses drugs to attack and kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy is often used along with chemotherapy. The high energy rays in radiation therapy attack and destroy cancer cells. Other treatments may also be recommended for colorectal cancer. Talk to your healthcare provider if you have any questions.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

Noel Turner, III
Burts, Turner, Rhodes & Thompson
Spartanburg, SC

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."
