Colon and Rectal Surgery

At JHCP, our colon and rectal surgeons focus on the medical and surgical treatment of diseases of colon, rectum, and anus. They treat benign and malignant conditions, perform routine screening examinations and surgically treat problems when necessary.

When faced with a painful and potentially life threatening disease, patients count on our advanced training and commitment to prescribing the most effective, most efficient and safest treatment options. Our dedication to improving the lives of our patients with colon and rectal disorders is centered on one mission – to provide high quality care.
