Colorectal Surgery

Overview

Colon and rectal diseases comprise a broad range of conditions, the severity of which can vary from mild to life threatening. Research has demonstrated that early screening and treatment of colon and rectal diseases can significantly improve treatment outcomes and survival rates. Even so, many patients delay or don’t seek treatment at all because of lack of knowledge about their disease, its symptoms, and the benefits of early treatment, or because they are too embarrassed to seek help.
