Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery refers to a variety of procedures used to repair damage to the colon, rectum, anus and pelvic floor caused by diseases of the lower digestive tract, such as cancer, diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease.

Midwest Surgical Specialists colon and rectal physicians are trained in the latest techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the colon and rectum. We offer symptomatic relief and treatment for hemorrhoids, fissures, diverticular disease and polyps, among other conditions.

Colon and rectal surgeons typically treat the following areas of the gastrointestinal tract:

Small intestine

Large intestine or colon

Rectum - the end of the large intestine

Anus - the end of the intestinal tract where the sphincter muscle opens and closes the rectum to outside of the body

Our approach to treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. We offer the greatest level of comfort and minimally invasive techniques, which reduce recovery time, minimize hospital stay and facilitate return to normal daily activity.

If you are experiencing any discomfort or changes in bowel movements consult your primary care provider.  Preventative testing is also available.
