Our Mission

The mission of the colon and rectal surgery program at Rush is to provide the very best care for adults and children with 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). We believe in personalized care and rapid communication with our patients and our referring providers.

Our Vision

Rush University Medical Center will be recognized as the medical center of choice in the Chicago area and among the very best clinical centers in the U.S. for patients with colorectal conditions.
