Colorectal surgery

At Bridgeport Hospital, our team of colorectal surgeons uses the latest techniques of minimally invasive surgery, when possible, to result in quicker recovery. The multidisciplinary group of surgeons and physicians team to create treatment plans specific to the patient’s individual condition and needs.

Conditions we treat

Even with the use of dietary changes, medications and other treatments, some conditions may progress to the point where surgery is necessary. Some conditions that our colorectal surgeons treat include:

  • Anal cancer
  • Anorectal disease
  • Colorectal cancer and polyps
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Rectal Prolapse 
  • Rectal cancer

Treatment

We work with the patient and their gastroenterologist to determine a treatment plan. We will use minimally invasive surgical techniques when the condition allows and will focus on conserving as much as the digestive system as possible.
