      What is Colorectal Surgery?

      Simply, colorectal surgery is a large group of surgeries that are performed involving the colon, rectum, or anus. These surgeries can be used to treat a variety of issues including colon polyps, colorectal cancers, hemorrhoids, and anal fissures.

      Colorectal problems can present anorectal pain, bleeding, or discharge; recurrent episodes of abdominal pain, especially on the lower left side; or painful lumps around the anus that may be itchy or bleed.

      What is Colorectal Cancer?

      Colorectal cancer is a serious condition as it is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. Colorectal cancer starts with the growth of polyps on the lining of the colon and rectum. These polyps grow rapidly and can develop into cancer over time.

      Screening is a very important tool in detecting colorectal cancer early and is typically done in the form of colonoscopies after the age of 50 or as directed by your gastroenterologist.

      Those at risk include:

      • Men and women aged 50 or older
      • People with a personal or family history of colorectal cancer or polyps
      • People with a long-term history of inflammatory bowel disease (Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease).
