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.
