Colon & Rectal Surgery

Colon & Rectal Surgery

The colorectal surgery division of the Spectrum Health Medical Group specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the colon and rectum. Our physicians are certified by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery (ABCRS), and they provide a wide range of surgical and non-surgical services for patients who suffer from colon and rectal conditions. We have specialized knowledge and expertise in treating the colon, rectum, anus and small bowel.

Colorectal surgery is often a necessary treatment option for colorectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and some cases of diverticulitis, often resulting in reconstruction of the intestinal tract. Other bowel conditions that may require surgery to a lesser extent are hemorrhoids, anal fissures (tears in the lining of the anus), rectal prolapse, and bowel incontinence. Most of these surgeries repair tears, remove blockages, or tighten sphincter muscles. Patients with anal fissures, for example, experience immediate relief, with more than 90 percent of them never having the problem recur.
