Fort Worth's Specialists in Diseases of the Colon & Rectum
We are Fort Worth's largest group of board-certified colon/rectal
surgeons.  We 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 medical 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.

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

Collaboration with physicians and surgeons in other specialties (e.g.
