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.
Offering comprehensive evaluation and treatment for patients, the Center
treats a spectrum of colon and rectal disorders. Patients benefit by receiving
cutting-edge, advanced treatment options, which allow for less pain, less
blood loss, better outcomes, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker return
to normal life or work.
Under the direction of Andrew Ross, MD, a regional leader in colo-rectal
surgery, the Center focuses on the medical management or
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),
tumors and incontinence, highlighted by a minimally invasive hemorrhoid
treatment that is virtually painless with no recovery time.
Boca Regional is a recognized leader in colorectal care. Its doctors have
performed more than 3,500 col-rectal surgeries – the most in Palm
Beach County – with 80 percent of all procedures performed robotically
or laparoscopically, far greater than the national average of 20 to 25 percent.
“At the collaborative Center for Colo-Rectal Surgery, our team has
been able to significantly enhance the scope of colo-rectal care provided
in the region,” said Dr. Ross. “By combining our team’s
expertise with the experience of our partnering physicians, the Center
lives up to its very name in providing the region with a centralized source
for comprehensive surgical treatment of colo-rectal conditions.”
