Colon and Rectal Surgery

Concerned about your risk for colon cancer, but dread the colonoscopy prep? Relax.

Thanks to Carle clinical research, the night before is now much simpler. You only need to drink 64 ounces of a solution - just a half gallon - mixed with a clear liquid such as lemonade, tea or apple juice. A colonoscopy takes as little as 30 minutes, and if a benign or precancerous polyp is found, it may be removed immediately.

In addition to colonoscopies, our colon-rectal surgeons provide surgical management of inflammatory bowel disease and treatment for colon and rectal cancers, anal abscesses, fissures, hemorrhoids and diverticular disease.
