COLON AND RECTAL CANCER
The Colorectal cancer program at Maimonides Cancer Center brings the best cutting-edge multidisciplinary care to patients with cancers of the colon, rectum, and anus, including but not limited to adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, lymphoma, and melanoma.
The multidisciplinary team is committed to designing a personalized treatment plan that maintains an optimal balance between preservation of quality of life and achieving the best possible oncologic outcome.
Our expert team of colon and rectal oncology includes highly skilled surgeons that utilize the most innovative and minimally invasive techniques available today to treat these malignancies including robotic-assisted and laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery.
In addition, our surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, radiologists, pathologists, nurse practitioners, and dedicated support staff come together weekly for multidisciplinary tumor board meetings to discuss and design a tailored comprehensive treatment plan for each patient.
Maimonides Cancer Center offers colorectal oncology patients a full array of services- from state-of-the-art diagnostic, medical, radiation, and surgical services, to genetic counseling, psycho-social support, and stoma nurse care that treats the whole patient and often family, not just the disease.
Located in the heart of Brooklyn, New York, the Colorectal oncology team takes pride in providing patients with the best comprehensive care all in one location.
