The faculty of the UCLA Section of Colorectal Surgery recognize that colorectal conditions can be particularly uncomfortable and distressing to our patients and we strive daily to deliver the best care to them in a friendly and compassionate manner.
The disorders we treat include colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's and ulcerative colitis), with emphasis on multidisciplinary care and minimally invasive surgery. We also treat complex diverticulitis, rectal prolapse, and common anorectal conditions such as hemorrhoids, fistulas and pilonidal cysts. We offer the most advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures available, including laparoscopic, robotic and transanal endoscopic surgery. We also perform complex open operations when minimally invasive surgery is not appropriate.
