Colon and Rectal Surgery
Colon and Rectal Surgery is a surgical specialty that treats diseases and complications of the lower gastrointestinal tract. This includes the benign and malignant tumors of the colon, rectum, and anus, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis, Diverticulitis, Fissures, Fistulas, Abscesses, Hemorrhoids, and many other complications arising in the colon, rectum and anus. Colon and Rectal surgeons are specially trained in both the medical pathophysiology of these diseases, as well as the appropriate surgical management of them. Wake Forest Baptist Health focuses on using a multi-disciplinary, multi-expert approach to obtain comprehensive care for patients with a wide range of colon, rectal and anal disorders. To ensure this, the colon and rectal surgeons work closely with gastroenterologists, radiologists, oncologists, and nutrition specialists.
