Our Program

Colorectal surgeons at Keck Medicine of USC are industry leaders in managing such conditions as colon cancer, anal cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and benign disorders of the colon, rectum and anus (such as polyps and diverticulitis). Our board-certified colorectal surgeons offer special expertise in minimally invasive surgery, complex surgical procedures for colonic and small bowel disease, and anorectal and pelvic floor dysfunction.

We are strongly committed to providing state-of-the-art treatment, using the latest advancements available in our internationally recognized education and research center.

Our colorectal surgeons are at the forefront of medicine. Your gift helps us fight cancer and develop new therapies.

Our Approach

We are dedicated to providing compassionate and innovative patient care for all aspects of colon and rectal diseases. Our mission is to provide the best patient care possible by focusing on patient outcomes, satisfaction, individual support and cultural sensitivity.

By collaborating with Keck Medicine gastroenterologists and oncologists, we take multiple medical disciplines into consideration to give you complete, comprehensive care in a friendly and private office environment.
