Weill Cornell Medicine’s colorectal surgeons are nationally and internationally recognized for their pioneering efforts and extensive experience in minimally invasive surgery and state-of-the-art laparoscopic technologies for colorectal cancer, Crohn’s disease and other inflammatory diseases.
The Colon and Rectal Division of the Department of surgery specializes in treating the full range of diseases and disorders that affect the colon, rectum, anus, appendix and small bowel.
In particular, we concentrate on precancerous polyps and cancers of the colon, rectum, anus and appendix as well as inflammatory bowel disease diverticulitis, lower gastrointestinal bleeding, ischemic or inflammatory colitis, familial adenomatous polyposis, rectal prolapse, pelvic floor disorders, constipation, incontinence, hemorrhoids, anal fissures and pilonidal cysts.
