Upstate's Colon and Rectal Surgery Division provides comprehensive treatment for patients with problems of the small intestine, colon, rectum, and anus.  We offer both surgical and nonsurgical management of a wide range of conditions, while remaining focused on the person before us suffering with the problem.

Our team of highly experienced Board Certified colon and rectal surgeons includes Dr. Jiri Bem, Dr. Jeffrey Albright, and Dr. Amit Goyal. We offer surgical treatment of patients at the Upstate University Hospital—Downtown campus and the Upstate University Hospital—Community General campus. We specialize in providing state-of-the-art treatment, including laparoscopic and robotic surgery.

  • Diagnostic procedures, including endoscopy
  • Treatment (surgical and nonsurgical)

A Team Approach

Our colon, rectal and anal cancer patients get the benefit of a team approach to their cancer care.  We use a multidisciplinary (team) approach to each cancer, including input from Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, and Pathology, as well as Ostomy Care nurses. This team approach lets us individualize the care we provide for each patient, and keeps a seamless approach to patient care that is a strength of our comprehensive cancer program at Upstate.

We also have extensive experience treating a wide variety of benign (non-cancerous) colon, rectal and anal problems. These include hemorrhoids, fissure, fistulas, diverticulitis, incontinence, and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.)
