Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Appointments are available for new and existing patients. See below for more information.

The surgeons and staff of Jefferson's Division of Colorectal Surgery treat patients with a number of disorders including colon and rectal cancer, polyps, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, fecal incontinence, peri-rectal abscess and fistula.  

While these conditions may be difficult to discuss, early diagnosis offers the best chance for a full recovery. Our physicians and surgeons in this Division have completed training in general surgery as well as advanced training in the treatment of colorectal disease. 

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Treating Colorectal Disorders

For decades we have used a highly refined treatment selection process and a multidisciplinary approach using state-of-the-art procedures in the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal disorders. We continue to focus on utilizing minimally invasive procedures, which result in decreased bleeding and quicker recovery times.

Maintaining Jefferson's core belief in offering world-class care and treatment, our colorectal surgeons collaborate with other specialists to provide coordinated diagnosis and treatment plans.

During COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak

We are still scheduling appointments for new and existing patients; however, we have made several temporary adjustments to how we deliver care to reduce your risk and ensure safety. Adjustments we’ve made include:

  • Video/Telehealth visits
    These visits allow you to use a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) or desktop computer with a camera to speak with your physician through a video connection.
  • Expanded In-person appointment hours
    We added early-morning and evening appointments for those with medical conditions that make them more susceptible to illness. Additionally, we created appropriate space between chairs in waiting areas and ensure that all patients and care team members have masks and appropriate protection.
  • Increased Health Protocols
    Learn some of the necessary steps we’ve taken to help patients and healthcare providers with their health.

Learn more about initiating a video visit by speaking with your physician’s office or by visiting our telehealth services page.
