Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal, or colon and rectal, operations treat a wide range of conditions. It could be as simple as hemorrhoids and fissure or more complicated like inflammatory bowel disease or rectal cancer.

Some conditions may be discovered during colonoscopies, which is why screenings are so important, especially for high-risk individuals.

Quality Care

Our surgeons are highly skilled and experienced in colorectal surgery. Most anal and rectal disorders can even be treated during one visit.

However, if you have a more complex condition, our team will use the most modern therapies and surgical skills available to give you the best care.

Most operations are minimally invasive. This means you have smaller incisions, less pain and a shorter hospital stay. Minimally invasive surgeries also offer you a faster recovery time.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

We are proud to offer specialized care for treating advanced IBD such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Our dedicated experts understand the complexities of these disease and work with other specialists to offer you personalized treatment. Our goal is to treat your condition without surgery unless it becomes necessary.

Cancer

Our approach to colon, rectal, or anal cancer is multidisciplinary. We will involve a team of medical professionals to offer you the best options for treatment. Surgery is typically the primary option for colon cancer. However, if your cancer is advanced, you may also need chemotherapy. There are also options like HIPEC, to treat widespread colon cancer.

With rectal cancer, your treatment path will depend on the extent of your cancer. For early stages, we can perform a small excision, which is a small operation that removes the cancer through the rectum.

For more advanced cancers, you may need radiation and chemotherapy before surgery. Sometimes, patients respond so well to radiation or chemotherapy that surgery can be avoided.

There are several options for treating anal cancer. Small, external anal cancers can be removed with local resection. However, large cancers may require chemotherapy and radiation instead.
