Don't Ignore the Symptoms that Affect You Every Day

We Can Help

Our team, which includes the region’s only board-certified colorectal surgeons, has a combined 40 years of experience in diagnosing and treating intestinal disorders. You can take comfort in the fact that they have seen it all and treated it all, with compassion and professionalism.

Today’s treatments for intestinal issues are a far cry from what was available just a decade ago. As a patient of the Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery, you’ll access to variety of treatment options. Our surgeons specialize in ground-breaking minimally invasive surgical techniques—many of which can be done on an outpatient basis—and will tailor a care plan to meet your individual needs.

These advanced techniques can effectively treat common intestinal conditions, such as:

  • Colon and rectal cancer
  • Colon and rectal polyps
  • Diverticulitis
  • Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Rectal prolapse
  • Hemorrhoids

Minimally invasive surgery for minimal impact on your day-today life.

Whenever possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive surgery, which has many benefits, including:

  • Reduced pain
  • Reduced risk of infection and complications
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
