Programs and Services

Colon and Rectal Surgery, Department of Surgery

The colon and rectal surgeons at Danbury Hospital offer sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic services to treat disorders of the colon, rectum, and anus, including:

  • General anal and rectal disease, including hemorrhoids, polyps, and fissures
  • Colon and rectal cancer
  • Inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Diverticulitis and diverticular disease

For many patients, the process begins with non-surgical screening and testing to decide the best course of treatment. Not all disorders require surgery, and many patients have been successfully treated without surgical intervention.

Advanced Techniques and Minimally-Invasive Options

If surgery is necessary, our commitment to new techniques and improved patient outcomes has given us the ability to offer advanced techniques not available in all hospitals, including: laparoscopic colectomy, Transanal endoscopic microsurgery, and J Pouch.

Our practice features increasing use of minimally invasive surgical techniques, to minimize discomfort and speed the healing process.
