    The Section of Colorectal Surgery at University of Kentucky is staffed by surgeons with expertise in diseases of the small bowel, colon, rectum and anus. Our surgeons are certified by the American Board of Colorectal Surgery and have advanced training in the treatment of colon and rectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease with special concentration in minimally invasive surgery of the gastrointestinal tract.

    Using advanced techniques, laparoscopic colorectal surgery is the preferred approach for colon and rectal cancer resection. This minimally invasive surgical option provides patients with faster return of bowel function, reduced postoperative pain, improved cosmetic results and has proved to be equivalent to traditional surgery in the treatment of colon cancer. The Section of Colorectal Surgery at University of Kentucky utilizes all modalities of minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopy, transanal endoscopic microsurgery and the da Vinci® robot.
