Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery — which includes surgery of the colon, rectum and anus — can be necessary to effectively treat a range of issues, from colorectal cancer and polyps to digestive problems like inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and diverticulitis.

Surgery may also be necessary to treat fistulas, fissures, chronic constipation and hemorrhoids.

Choosing a skilled, highly trained and experienced surgeon improves the odds of a safe, complication-free recovery from what can often be a complicated procedure.
