Why A Colorectal Specialist?
Colonoscopies can be performed by both a gastroenterologist and a colorectal physician. If the results of your colonoscopy determine additional treatment is required, a highly trained colorectal surgical specialist is often the provider of choice to provide advanced care. Early diagnosis and treatment by a colorectal expert could save your life.
Most Texas Colon & Rectal Specialists are certified by the American Board of Colon & Rectal Surgery, the premier society for surgeons specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of colon and rectal disorders. As board-certified surgeons, Texas Colon & Rectal Specialists physicians share proficiency in the field of general surgery, but have also completed advanced training in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of colon and rectal diseases and disorders.
