Colorectal disease can be mild, or it can be lifethreatening.But no matter how serious the condition is, it always makes sense to get the very best care available. The Division of Colorectal Surgery seeks to bring every patient the most advanced care for colorectal disease.
We believe colorectal surgery should be performed by highly-trained specialists. Our specialty-trained surgeons are experts in the latest techniques, including minimally invasive surgery.
For cancer cases, we have a weekly board where in surgeons, medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and other experts come together in order to reach a consensus on the best treatment for the patient.
Our surgeons are all highly qualified and received training at the best institutions in the world and have published hundreds of papers on colorectal disease and its treatments. They are at the forefront of their field and are regularly invited to speak and teach around the world.
