Sandra J. Beck, MD, FACS, FASCRS

Section Head, Colorectal Surgery


My name is Sandra Beck; I attended medical school at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio and completed a general surgery residency at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. I then completed training in colon and rectal surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.

My clinical interests include the surgical treatment of Colon and Rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis) and complex anal-rectal disorders. I specialize in minimally invasive approaches to colorectal disorders including laparoscopy, robotic surgery and transanal endoscopic microsurgery.
