Colon & Rectal Surgery

Colon and rectal surgery focuses on the treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the intestinal tract, rectum, anus and peri-anal areas. This surgical specialty emphasizes the use of minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, since these typically lead to fewer complications and a faster, more comfortable healing for patients.

At Stamford Health Medical Group, our board-certified colorectal surgeons specialize in laparoscopic colon resection. Laparoscopic colon resection requires shorter recovery, less stress on the body and a shorter hospitalization.

Colorectal surgeons also perform the full range of screening and diagnostic tests for diseases, malignant and benign, affecting the colon and rectum, including colonoscopy.
