Colon and rectal disorders comprise a wide range of conditions, including cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases, abscesses and ulcerative colitis. Treatment in many cases will depend on the type and extent of your condition and your overall health.

Overview

The focus in many colorectal surgeries will be to spare as much of your organs as possible by removing your tumor and possibly surrounding healthy tissue using precise, minimally invasive procedures. In severe cases, we may have to remove all or part of the affected area and form alternative ways for your body to channel waste.
