Each surgeon in our group provides expert care for patients with problems of lower intestinal tract, including colon and rectal cancer, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, anorectal problems (e.g. hemorrhoids, fissures, abscesses, fistulas), and pelvic floor disorders (e.g. fecal incontinence or evacuation problems). We believe strongly in preventative care and regularly screen our patients for colorectal polyps and cancer.
