Fort Worth's Specialists in Diseases of the Colon & Rectum
We are board-certified general and colon/rectal surgeons who work
as a team to provide diagnosis and both surgical and non-surgical
management of diseases of the colon, rectum, anus and small
intestine. We are also active in screening colonoscopy for the
prevention of colorectal cancer.
Our goal is to provide excellent care for our patients, with the
utmost of compassion and understanding. Treatment decisions are
based on communication with the patient, so that the patient plays
a very important role in his or her own care.

|Laparoscopic (minimally-invasive) colon and rectal surgery|
|Surgery for cancer of the colon and rectum, including |
|sphincter-sparing (colostomy-avoiding) surgery, if possible|

|Treatment of anorectal abscesses, fissures, fistulae, skin |
|conditions of the perianal region, and rectal prolapse|
|Surgical treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's |
|disease and ulcerative colitis)|
|Treatment of diverticulitis|
|Investigation of rectal bleeding|
|Diagnostic and screening colonoscopy|
|Collaboration with physicians and surgeons in other |
|specialties (e.g. oncologists, gastroenterologists, urologists, |
gynecologists) for team-based approach to treatment of
colorectal disease, or for diagnosis and treatment of
problems that may co-exist with colorectal disease.
