Advanced Surgical Skills Mean Better Results.
The surgeons and staff of St. Luke’s Colon and Rectal Center specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus with emphasis on screening for colon cancer, the surgical management of colorectal cancer, hemorrhoids, diverticular disease fecal incontinence, polyps, and inflammatory bowel disease.
As with many diseases, early diagnosis offers the best chance for a full recovery when it comes to colorectal diseases and disorders. Our physicians and surgeons have completed training in general surgery as well as advanced training in the treatment of colorectal disease.
A Multidisciplinary Approach to Treating Colorectal Disorders
Our colon and rectal surgeons use, and continue to improve, a highly refined treatment selection process and multidisciplinary approach using advanced procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal disorders. We’re committed to using minimally-invasive procedures whenever possible, because these result in decreased bleeding and shorter recovery times.
St. Luke’s colorectal surgeons collaborate with other specialists to provide coordinated diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plans.
