Surgical Services for Colorectal Cancer

After the colorectal cancer is diagnosed and staged, your doctor will recommend a treatment plan. Treatment may include colon or rectal surgery.  Often, the primary treatment for colorectal cancer is an operation called a colon resection, in which the cancer and a length of normal tissue on either side of the cancer are removed, as well as the nearby lymph nodes.

A colon resection can be performed by a general surgeoncolorectal surgeon or surgical oncologist.
