Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery

Advanced Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our colon and rectal surgeons are trained to provide the most sophisticated surgical care for patients with a wide range of diseases and disorders.  They have expertise in the use of minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy) and other minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of colorectal diseases, including cancer.  At Stony Brook, our surgeons approach more cases robotically to provide the safest least invasive option for our patients. Types of procedures we perform include robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System, laparoscopic surgery and open surgery.

Through the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program, a multi-disciplinary team (including anesthesiologists, surgeons, nurse practitioners, physicians, assistants, nurses, pharmacists and social workers) will work with you to ensure that you are getting the best care, both before and after your procedure. Our goal is to have you back to your normal lifestyle as quickly as possible.
