Vanderbilt Colon and Rectal Surgery

The Colon and Rectal Surgery Program at Vanderbilt is the fastest growing colon and rectal surgery practice in middle Tennessee. Surgeons treat the full-spectrum of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus, working collaboratively with a team of gastroenterologists, endoscopists and experts from the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. The Colon and Rectal Surgery Program also initiated and coordinates the Hereditary Colon Cancer Registry, which gathers critical information on patients and their family members who have either had colorectal cancer or are at risk of developing the disease. This registry enables physicians and surgeons to better understand the nature of hereditary colorectal cancer, ultimately leading to improved treatment options. Learn More >>
