UCLA Colorectal Surgery


About Us

The UCLA Section of Colon and Rectal Surgery is committed to providing the highest level of care to patients with colorectal disease while advancing the field through meaningful research and training future generations of surgeons. Our faculty members are leading experts in the treatment of malignant and benign conditions of the small intestine, colon, rectum, and anus.

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.

The faculty of the UCLA Section of Colon and Rectal 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.
