Treating Cancer of the Colon, Rectum and Anus
Colon cancer is cancer of the colon and rectum.
Sisters of Charity Hospital has a long tradition of caring for patients with diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. You are cared for by a team of surgeons, oncologists, and endostomal therapists. Because of the special care provided by colorectal surgeons, our patients experience improved quality of life.
Diagnosing Your Risk of Colon Cancer
Due to recent awareness of the importance of the importance of screening colonoscopy to find early lesions (polyps and carcinoma), increased effort has been made to evaluate all patients at risk. These procedures have been performed by colorectal surgeons.
