Colorectal Cancer Care at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?
Many of the colorectal cancer specialists completed additional training through fellowships in advanced gastrointestinal surgery. We are experienced in treating common and complex cancers. Highlights of our program include:
Specialized care for high-risk patients:
Some patients face a higher colorectal cancer risk due to family history. Cancer genetic testing helps you learn whether you are at risk and how the specialists can help. Find out more about cancer genetics.
For eligible patients, care includes minimally invasive techniques. These techniques are gentler on your body and may preserve the ability to control your bowels. For rectal cancer, you may receive transanal (for very early-stage rectal cancer) or transabdominal robotic surgery. Robotic surgical technology enables us to access these hard-to-reach growths and remove them. Explore cancer surgery.
For complex cancers, including ones that extend beyond surface layers of tissue, you benefit from the recommendations of multiple specialists. Colorectal surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and other doctors tailor your care in meetings called multidisciplinary tumor boards.
Cancer nurse navigators are here for you through every step of your care experience. They reach out to you early on to answer questions and provide emotional support. Nurse navigators also help coordinate appointments and explain what to expect so that you can focus on healing.
