Welcome to the Division of Colorectal Surgery

The Division of Colorectal Surgery at the University of Rochester Medical Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the intestines, rectum, and anus. Our team of highly qualified surgeons deals effectively with the full range of colorectal disorders, and each of us is committed to providing you with compassionate, high-quality care.

Some of the most common diseases and conditions we treat include:

A positive outcome begins with our initial consult with your family doctor to understand the intricacies of your medical history, followed by a thorough patient assessment. After these procedures are completed, we work up a comprehensive report that includes all recommendations and proposed next steps. We make it a point to communicate regularly with you and your doctor—when we provide our report, before and after your surgery, at the time of your discharge, and any other time it proves to be helpful.

The Latest Treatments and Technologies

The Division of Colorectal Surgery offers our patients the latest, most effective treatments and technologies. For example, our surgeons are skilled in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery. These are surgical procedures performed through tiny incisions. Patients who have minimally invasive surgical procedures experience much less trauma to their bodies and usually recover significantly faster.

In addition, the medical equipment and resources available to the colorectal team are second to none. The University of Rochester Medical Center is one of the top research hospitals in the country.
