Colon and Rectal Surgery

The Ochsner Department of Colon and Rectal Surgery has a long and excellent tradition of surgical leadership and education. Our six renowned surgeons have over 100 years of combined experience in the surgical treatment of diseases of the small intestine, colon, rectum and anus. Supported by the advanced, state of the art technology available at Ochsner Health we provide a wide range of outstanding services by combining innovative treatments with personal, individualized patient care.

Our strengths include the surgical management of both routine anorectal maladies and extraordinary conditions including inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease), colorectal and anal cancer, fecal incontinence, diverticulitis, adhesions, stomal management and laparoscopic surgery. We host numerous cutting edge clinical research programs developing new, creative and innovative techniques and treatments: Transrectal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TEMS) and Robotic surgery.

These efforts, along with the high skill-level of our staff make the Ochsner Department of Colon and Rectal Surgery one of the finest colorectal programs in the United States and the premier program in the Gulf South.
