Relief From Digestive Discomfort

Ailments that affect the lower end of your digestive tract – the colon and rectum – can be uncomfortable. They can lower your quality of life. They can even be life-threatening. For relief from these conditions, many South Jersey residents turn to Virtua’s colorectal surgeons.

Our surgeons perform more than 1,200 colorectal surgeries every year to treat conditions such as: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, hemorrhoids, polyps, and colon cancer.

In some cases, we can offer robotic-assisted surgery as an option. With this approach, your specially trained surgeon performs the procedure through a few small incisions in your body. The robotic assistance can provide a clearer view of the surgical site and help the surgeon make more precise movements with surgical tools. The benefits to you can include less pain, a shorter hospital stay, and a quicker return to your normal routines.

We’ve also equipped our colorectal specialists with advanced, high-definition colonoscopy equipment for detecting growths in the colon and rectum.

To find a colorectal surgeon, call us at 1-888-VIRTUA-3 (1-888-847-8823).
