Superior Care for Colon and Rectal Conditions

The mission of the USC Colorectal Surgery Program is to offer innovative treatments and compassionate care. We treat every type of colorectal disease, including inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis) and colon and rectal cancer. We help manage malignant and benign diseases from colon polyps to anal cancer in a friendly, private setting.

We use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. That means more colons spared, fewer permanent ostomy bags, and easier recoveries. We never stop working to give our patients better care and faster, more comfortable recoveries.
