Colon & Rectal Surgery

This branch of surgery involves the colon, rectum, and anus. Colon surgery commonly involves removal of portions of the colon for either benign or malignant tumors.

All our physicians deal with proctology, that branch of surgery dealing with the rectum and anus. Rectal surgeries for common problems such as hemorrhoids, fissures, fistulas, or abscesses can usually be performed comfortably in the office or at outpatient centers under light sedation with supplemental local anesthesia. Return to full activity is swift. We also specialize in painless, non-operative treatments for bothersome or bleeding hemorrhoids.
