Expertise for Colon and Rectal Surgery

Scripps surgeons offer a high level of expertise in procedures of the gastrointestinal tract, including specialization in colon and rectal surgery. When possible, surgeons employ minimally-invasive techniques, such as laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer. Due to smaller incision sizes, these methods encourage quicker recovery and reduced infection rates.

Scripps surgeons and medical staff are at the forefront of their field, leading developments in progressive treatment methods and patient care standards.
