In brief: Laparoscopic surgery
Adhesions are basically scar tissue which forms in response to irritation or inflammation of the intestine.
They can be minimized by having laparoscopic surgery rather than open abdominal surgery. Once you have bowel adhesions there is no good way to eliminate them. Laparoscopic surgery to free the adhesions can be done in many cases if there are significant symptoms.
