The Center for Colo-Rectal Surgery
The Center for Colo-Rectal Surgery at Boca Raton Regional Hospital specializes in providing an integrated approach to the surgical treatment of colo-rectal diseases, with a focus on collaboration among specialized physicians from Boca Regional and throughout the region.
Under the direction of Andrew Ross, MD, a regional leader in colo-rectal surgery, the Center focuses on surgical intervention for a variety of conditions, including colo-rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), diverticulitis and anorectal disease (hemorrhoids and fistulas), highlighted by a minimally invasive hemorrhoid treatment that is virtually painless with no recovery time.
When treating colo-rectal cancer patients, the Center employs a multimodality approach, in which an entire medical team assembles at one time and in one location to create a strategic, personalized treatment plan for the patient. Multimodality clinics are a cornerstone component of treatment at Boca Regional’s Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute.
