Lenox Hill Hospital offers surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for diseases of the colon and rectum. We treat a wide variety of diseases, including colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, rectal prolapse, bowel incontinence, hemorrhoids, Crohn’s disease and diverticular disease.

The division is staffed by board-certified colorectal surgeons and general surgeons with years of experience utilizing cutting-edge medical and surgical techniques for better patient outcomes. Our colorectal surgeons specialize in traditional surgical techniques, as well as minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery, which offer patients a range of benefits like less postoperative pain, shortened recovery time and less scarring.
