Cedars-Sinai Proctologists

Los Angeles Colon and Rectal Surgical Associates

No one wants to hear the news…you have cancer. But many people will develop colorectal cancer.   Even more people will face benign problems that affect the colon and rectum. But with the right treatment from the experienced physicians and surgeons of Los Angeles Colon Rectal Surgical Associates, disease prevention, proper medical care, and recovery is possible.

Did you know that a preventive screening for colorectal cancer every 5 to 10 years, after age 50, will prevent an estimated the majority of all colorectal cancers? In a recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers found that regular colonoscopy screenings are highly effective at identifying the warning signs of cancer and aiding in prevention. That’s why anyone in the Los Angeles area concerned about their colon or rectal health should consider Los Angeles Colon Rectal Surgical Associates for ongoing care.

The Practice

The proctologists at Los Angeles Colon Rectal Surgical Associates provide preventive care and treatment options for colon and rectal health.  Our five proctologists at Cedars-Sinai Hospital have over 60 years of combined medical experience caring for patients and extensive training in diagnostics, treatment, and surgery for colorectal conditions. They have been named in consecutive years as Top Surgeons from Southern California by the industry publication SuperDoctors.

Our proctologists will always explore the least invasive medical options to treat your condition with compassion and care. But if surgery is the only option, you’ll be in good hands. Our surgeons are trained in the most advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques for hemorrhoidal surgery and the treatment of colon and rectal disorders.

Their specialized interests in preventive care, minimally invasive surgical techniques, colorectal cancer treatment and prevention, and women’s health, provide the best care possible. And in addition to helping patients in the office and the operating room, our team of doctors also serve as medical school faculty members and regularly publish research in the leading colorectal medical journals.

Proctology

If you require special attention for a problem with the colon, rectum or anus, and you experience symptoms that prompt you to see a doctor, a proctologist, specially trained in this area will be the specialist best able to handle your concerns. Rectal bleeding, bloody stool, abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss or lack of energy can all be symptoms of colon and rectal health problems that need medical care.

Your primary care physician can treat the symptoms of many of these common problems. But if your condition worsens or the initial treatment options don’t seem to be working, you may benefit from a consultation with a specialist at Los Angeles Colon Rectal Surgical Associates.  And even if you don’t have any acute symptoms that could indicate a colorectal problem, proper preventive care and screenings are an important part of healthy living.

This Cedars-Sinai team of colorectal doctors and surgeons are dedicated to providing the best patient care possible for health problems such as colorectal cancer, hemorrhoids, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis and other conditions associated with the lower digestive tract.
