Colon and Rectal surgeons specialize in the surgical treatment of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus including cancer.
The American Cancer Society estimates that 108,070 new cases of colon cancer were diagnosed in 2008 in the United States. Although colon cancer is among the most common forms of cancer, when colon and rectal cancers are found early, there is nearly a 90% chance for cure.
Colon and Rectal surgeons provide surgical treatment for cancer in addition to:
- Crohn’s disease
- Cancers of the colon, rectum, and anus
- Colon and rectal polyps
- Ulcerative colitis
- Laparoscopic colon & rectal surgery
At The Polyclinic, our Colon and Rectal Surgeons have been Board Certificated by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery. They are experienced surgeons who bring compassionate, comprehensive care to their patients.
