Anal Warts—in-office and operative destruction

Robotic and Laparoscopic colon and rectal resection:  In these operations, small incisions are used to remove the diseased portion of colon or rectum.  In an additional advance, the anastomosis or reconnection of the bowel, is now also performed through these small incisions greatly reducing the size of incision needed to remove the specimen.  In some cases, the portion of colon removed can even be removed though the anus, eliminating the need for a larger incision altogether.

Magnetic Assisted Colectomy—using an additional magnetic retractor, the number of minimally invasive surgical incisions can be reduced.

Colostomy Closure—using minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic techniques a colostomy can be re-attached to the remaining rectum without have to open up a new abdominal incision.

Robotic Mesh Rectopexy—used to treat internal and external rectal prolapse, this procedure allows for a fast recovery and a durable solution to a difficult problem

Sacral Neuromodulation—a minimally invasive implant that helps to improve bowel control when the symptoms cannot be controlled with dietary and medical management

Complex Hernia Repair—complex repairs of large hernias, frequently co-existent with colostomies, can by performed by mobilizing the layers of the abdominal wall.  This also allows the use of mesh without having to place the mesh adjacent to the intestine.

Hemorrhoid Repair—multiple options are used, from in office rubber band ligation of the hemorrhoids to surgical removal

Anal Fistula Repair—multiple surgeries are used depending on size and length of fistula, with goal to decrease the damage to the surrounding anal tissues as much as possible

Colonoscopy—used a screening tool to prevent colon and rectal cancer, and can treat some colonic disorders as well

Anorectal Manometry—used in the evaluation of constipation and bowel control disorders
