Colon Cancer and Rectal Cancer Treatments
(Also see Cancer / Treatments / Surgery)
Our board-certified colorectal surgery team are experts in minimally-invasive laparoscopic colectomy for colon cancer as well as traditional open colorectal surgeries.
Minimally-invasive colectomy is equal or superior to open surgery, but patients have a much shorter recovery and less risk of complications. Many colorectal patients, including the elderly, may be good candidates for this procedure.
Our advanced operating suites, outfitted with the most technologically up-to-date equipment, promote patient safety and best outcomes.
We focus on the human side of the surgical experience as well. In our patient-friendly operating rooms, nurses provide warm support within a calm and healing environment, known as the Sacred Space that helps put patients at ease. Through soft music, scenic murals, dimmed lighting and our nurses’ gentle touch and dedicated attention, patients receive personal and comforting care.
