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 System 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.
