The Colorectal Surgery Center at Carondelet Health Network offers comprehensive care for all aspects of colorectal health. From preventive tests like colonoscopies to providing multidisciplinary care for complex disorders, the specialists at Carondelet
are here to help you. We diagnose and treat the full spectrum of colorectal conditions, including colorectal cancer treatment.

The colorectal experts at Carondelet can help you with management of a wide range of proctologic conditions with surgery and other therapies, including:
Experienced surgeons can provide you with treatment for a wide range of problems of the rectum, colon or small bowel, and can perform procedures such as:

Segmental and total colectomy
Abdomino-perineal resection (APR)
Low anterior resection (LAR)
Rectal resection with reconstruction
Colostomy or ileostomy reversals
Ileal pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA)

For those with suspected IBD, we start with a complete evaluation, which may involve blood work, endoscopic procedures and diagnostic imaging. The doctors who collaborate with us will rule out other causes for your symptoms before diagnosing IBD and work
with gastroenterologists to provide you with a personalized care plan. The first line of treatment is usually lifestyle changes and medical therapy, including anti-inflammatory drugs and immune system suppressors. In some cases, surgery may bring
Pelvic Floor Problems
Don’t suffer in silence with a pelvic floor disorder. If untreated, disorders of the pelvic floor may result in fecal incontinence (accidental bowel leakage), urinary problems or prolapse symptoms (when organs fall out of normal position). We can
