Colorectal Surgery

St. Anthony's Hospital Houston offers the latest in the diagnosis, medical management and surgical treatment of disorders of the colon, rectum and anus. Our colorectal surgeons perform hundreds of operations each year using state-of-the-art technology and have expertise in:

  • Colorectal and anal tumors, including hereditary tumor syndromes such as familial polyposis and non-polyposis colon cancers.  New surgery techniques for rectal cancers may preserve the anal sphincters and prevent the need for colostomy.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis) including ileo-anal pouch (also called J- or S- pouch) procedures.
  • Diverticular disease, especially when complicated by fistulas to other organs such as the bladder, uterus or vagina.
  • Endoscopy of the colon, rectum and anus, with biopsy or polyp removal, if necessary.
  • Intestinal and anorectal disorders such as incontinence, pain, chronic diarrhea and rectal prolapse.
  • Common conditions such as hemorrhoids, fissures, abscesses and fistulas.
