Colorectal Treatment Options
The lower part of the digestive tract, called the large intestine, is comprised of the colon and rectum. It is called the colorectal region. It can develop issues that range from occasionally bothersome to life-threatening. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in men and women who live in the U.S. In 2020, the American Cancer Society estimated 104,610 new cases of colon cancer and 45,340 cases of rectal cancer.
Numerous noncancerous conditions can cause pain and discomfort. These include, but are not limited to, inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, blockages and ruptures, infected pockets (diverticulitis) and abscesses, and others that can take a toll on quality of life and may require medical care. In the case of cancer or when lifestyle changes, medicine, and other options do not ease symptoms of noncancerous conditions, our specialists may suggest surgery.
We provide the best, most up-to-date medical care and procedures for colon and rectal disorders. We make every attempt to provide non-surgical alternatives for a patient’s condition. When colorectal surgery is necessary, we believe it should be precise, state-of-the-art, and minimally invasive to minimize patient discomfort and reduce healing time.
