By education of one to two surgeons at the time we limit the learning curve and reduce the complications. 250 patients have been operated for both benign and malignant colorectal diseases. The operation time is still longer than with the open technique. Conversion rate is 18 per cent, no mortality and few serious complications are seen. The blood loss is in mean 150 ml. With shorter time at the operation theatre through optimal education of the hole operation team, the costs for laparoscopic colorectal surgery will diminish. In the future with better laparoscopic technique, we believe there will be increased numbers of total colectomies and operations in the small pelvic.
