While the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer represents a major focus of Beaumont’s colorectal surgery specialty, our multidisciplinary teams offer comprehensive care for many disorders affecting the lower intestinal tract including anal and perianal disease and inflammatory bowel diseases.
Our specialists are certified by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery and perform thousands of these surgeries each year.

Beaumont offers residency training in colorectal surgical procedures, a program that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. In addition, members of the department represent an integral part of the teaching faculty for our larger fully accredited residency in general surgery. Activities include weekly multidisciplinary colorectal tumor conference, monthly journal review, grand rounds and activities promoting laparoscopic/robotic and minimally invasive surgical training in the Marcia & Eugene Applebaum Surgical Learning Center.
As one of the nation's highest volume centers for the treatment of colon and rectal disease, Beaumont participates as a member of the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group. Whenever appropriate, patients will be given the option to participate in national clinical trials for cancer research.

The most common symptom of colon cancer is none at all.
Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States. Because many people experience no symptoms during the early stages, early detection through regular screenings is the best way to improve the chance of successful treatment.
