In addition to full training in general surgery, our colorectal surgeons have completed advanced training in the treatment of colorectal problems, and therefore, play an important role in the effective treatment of patients with colorectal diseases. 

We are committed to providing the safest, most patient-focused and effective clinical care. Not only do we specialize in the surgical treatment of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus, including inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and pelvic floor disorders, but we are leaders in the use of advanced laparoscopic and robotic colorectal surgery, using minimally invasive techniques.

UCSF colorectal surgeons have decades of experience and expertise in the most challenging and complex cases. We are a high volume referral center for the region and routinely handle cases that other institutions turn away either because of their rarity or because the patients suffer from multiple condtions making care technically challenging.
