Surgical procedures
Surgery is often the best option for a variety of colorectal conditions. At all of its campuses, Aria offers traditional forms of open surgery, performed by experienced, board-certified surgeons.   But more recently developed forms of surgery that are minimally invasive and use a laparoscopic approach offer the advantages of small incisions, less pain, early discharge, and faster return to normal activities.  Specialists can
treat a variety of colorectal conditions with these newer types of procedures:



inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)


proctologic conditions (conditions of the anus and rectum)

colorectal cancer
