Archive: Colon and Rectal Surgery

The University of Wisconsin’s Colorectal Surgery Program offers referring physicians and patients the specialized surgical expertise, advanced imaging technology and leading research that you would expect from a top academic medical center. Our surgeons provide comprehensive evaluation and surgical treatment for diseases of the colon, rectum and anus.

What sets the Colorectal Surgery Program apart from other institutions in delivering care for patients with benign and malignant diseases of the colon and rectum is a clear correlation between high surgical volume and better outcomes. UW colorectal surgeons perform more colorectal surgery procedures than any other center in Wisconsin.

We are proud to be part of the University of Wisconsin’s Paul P. Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the state.

We offer truly multidisciplinary care to our patients. Our team includes colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists and pathologists with specialized training and expertise in benign and malignant colorectal diseases. This combined effort allows us to evaluate and discuss patient care via a weekly colorectal surgery forum, thus providing optimal patient specific treatment strategies.

We are dedicated to colorectal disease education. Each year UW colorectal surgeons provide a Continuing Medical Education (CME) program for referring physicians, presenting timely updates and instruction on a variety of colorectal disease oriented topics.
