Colon & Rectal Surgery
At Cape Cod Healthcare, our highly skilled colorectal surgeons have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the colon, rectum and anus. They work closely with physicians in gastroenterology and other specialties to coordinate and customize your care.
Exceptional Care for Colorectal Conditions
Offering the skills and sophisticated technology you need, patients will find exceptional care for a wide range of conditions, including:
- Colon and rectal cancer
- Polyps of the colon and rectum
- Anal conditions such as hemorrhoids, fistula and fissure
- Bowel (fecal) incontinence
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease
- Rectal prolapse
Treatment ranges from non-surgical alternatives, such as colonoscopy, to surgery using the least invasive techniques possible. Surgery that is minimally invasive involves smaller incisions and results in less pain and scarring, a lower chance of infection and shorter hospital stays.
Advanced options are available to help patients overcome fecal incontinence, including the innovative InterStim® Therapy.
