Colorectal Cancer Program

Winthrop�s Colorectal Cancer Program offers comprehensive care for patients with cancer of the large intestine (colon) and/or the rectum. Because of its troubling symptoms and risk of serious complications, it is important for patients diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer to see prompt treatment from skilled and knowledgeable physicians in order to remove cancerous tissue and reduce the risk of recurrence.

Winthrop�s colorectal experts have specialized training and extensive experience in all types of colon and rectal surgery. They utilize advanced, minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques � including transanal endoscopic microsurgery to remove polyps, tumors and other lesions � whenever possible to reduce pain, scarring and recovery time.

Treatment, which may involve removal or part or all of the affected areas, depends on the stage of each patient�s condition, but often includes:
  • Surgery
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Combination of therapies
