A colon & rectal surgeon is a general surgeon who has had additional specialized training, and has a particular interest in the treatment of diseases affecting the digestive system. These include a multitude of benign and malignant disorders affecting the colon directly and indirectly.
Furthermore, a colon & rectal surgeon is well versed in surgical techniques and medical management of colon diseases not familiar to other general surgeons. Rectal bleeding, anal and abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, and other disorders of bowel function are frequent signs of colon or rectal disease including cancer, and an evaluation by a colorectal surgeon would be appropriate.
