Colorectal surgeons at Rush are dedicated to providing timely, comprehensive and compassionate care for adults and children with all types of disorders of the lower intestinal tract, including complex colorectal problems.

Our physicians are on the cutting edge of surgical and technological advancements in the field and have pioneered many minimally invasive techniques, including colorectal laparoscopy, intestinal robotic surgery and transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM). And we believe in personalized care and rapid communication with our patients and our referring providers.

We offer our patients a full range of options:

  • Laparoscopic and robotic surgery for most colorectal surgical problems
  • Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) for large rectal polyps and early cancers
  • Treatment of locally advanced and metastatic colon, rectal and anal cancers
  • Management of inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and complicated anorectal disease
  • Treatment of acute and complicated diverticular disease,
  • Definitive treatment for pilonidal disease
  • Ileal pouch-anal anastomosis for ulcerative colitis and familial polyposis
