Conditions Treated

The colorectal surgeons at UI Health provide advanced care for all types of colon and rectal disorders. Our team has expertise in evaluating and treating a full range of anorectal and inflammatory conditions, including:

  • Anal fissures: Anal fissures are small tears in the lining of the rectal opening.
  • Anal warts and anal dysplasia: Anal warts and dysplasia are conditions caused by HPV.
  • Crohn's disease: Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that can affect any area of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Diverticulitis: Diverticulitis is an inflammation or infection in one or more small pouches in the digestive tract.
  • Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort.
  • Perianal abscesses and perinatal fistula: Infections can cause abscesses to form in the rectal region; a fistula is a small passage connecting the anal gland from which the abscess arose to the skin where it was drained.
  • Pelvic floor problems: Patients with pelvic floor problems - including fecal incontinence, prolapse or severe constipation - are evaluated at our Bowel Function and Incontinence Center.
  • Ulcerative colitis: Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease that can engage the colon and the rectum.
