A Team Approach
Our Colorectal Oncology Program offers our patients the benefit of a multidisciplinary team approach to their cancer care as we work directly and seek input from Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, and Pathology, as well as Ostomy Care nurses. This team approach allows us individualize the care we provide for each patient.
In addition, we have extensive experience treating a wide variety of benign (non-cancerous) diseases of the colon, rectal and anal. These include, but are not limited to the following: diverticulitis, fissures, fistulas, hemorrhoids, incontinence, and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).
