Welcome to Colon and Rectal Surgery
The colon and rectal surgery team at VCU Health treats complex colorectal and anorectal diseases with a patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach.
Our enhanced recovery program improves patient outcomes and accelerates recovery from surgery while reducing complications. We help patients navigate treatment pathways with support from a CRS-specialized nurse and nurse practitioner. Our faculty surgeons are board certified in both general surgery and colon and rectal surgery.
General surgery residents at VCU are vital members of the CRS surgical team. Residents learn endoscopy, as well as clinical and surgical management of anorectal, colon and rectal diseases. Residents participate in open, laparoscopic and robotic procedures.General Surgery Residency Program
We have a strong focus on research and evidence-based patient care.
Our faculty are engaged in multiple research endeavors. This includes translational research for regenerative medicine treatments of fecal incontinence, clinical research for integration of palliative care into surgical treatment pathways and quality care improvement research to improve clinical outcomes in colon and rectal surgery.
