Our gastroenterologists and surgeons have completed rigorous advanced training to specialize in colorectal diseases. They are committed to working together to develop a personalized care plan to treat your condition. This includes collaborating with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgeons from other specialties to offer patients with complex colorectal problems an integrated treatment plan.

Conditions treated include:

  • Anorectal and rectal conditions, including hemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal fistulas, and rectal-vaginal fissures
  • Colon cancer
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Diverticulitis
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Rectal cancer
  • Fecal incontinence

In some cases, surgery may be required to treat any one of these conditions. Such procedures can include a colectomy, where all or part of the colon is removed; laparoscopic surgery for benign and malignant conditions; lower anterior resection, or total mesorectal excision for rectal cancer.
