Sometimes these can be done at the same time. The deciding factor is the general health of the patient, the amount of area that needs to be resected and the people available for the surgical team. The increased time of the surgery does increase the risk in some cases but not prohibitively so in most healthy patients. However, you do need to consider that having two opposing surgical sites makes it a little bit tougher in the postoperative phase.
