The Colon and Rectal Surgery program at Saint Francis is a leader in the treatment of colorectal disease and in teaching physicians who have gone on to practice across the country and around the world. Our surgeons are experts in the surgical and non-surgical treatment of disease of the colon, rectum, anus, and small bowel. Each surgeon is certified by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery and has completed advanced training in the treatment of colon and rectal problems in addition to full training in general surgery.
Our surgeons draw patients from across Connecticut and other New England states and perform approximately 600 procedures a year. In addition, the colon and rectal surgeons at Saint Francis have performed more robotic colorectal surgeries than any other hospital team in New England, and rank in the top 10 for volume in the United States – a record of experience that correlates with better results.
