Our Department of Surgery is comprised of eleven Divisions, nine clinical Divisions, a Division of Research, and a Division of Education.

Our practice is strictly colorectal and includes a significant volume of colon and rectal cancer, the breadth of both benign and malignant anal and rectal pathology, inflammatory disease - including diverticular disease and inflammatory bowel disease, and functional disease including treatment of pelvic floor and continence issues. Laparoscopy and robotic surgery are a large part of our abdominal practice. We have a robust research program and a full time Colorectal Research Coordinator who assists with all our clinical, translational, and industry sponsored research projects.
