Conditions

The Capitol Colorectal Surgery team is committed to caring for the unique needs of each patient with the highest level of quality.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopies are commonly performed to diagnose abnormalities of the large intestine and to screen for colorectal cancer and colorectal polyps. The procedure is frequently performed in an outpatient setting with minimal discomfort and inconvenience. Because colonoscopy allows doctors to identify and remove certain types of colon polyps that may develop into cancer, colonoscopy can be a therapeutic and even life-saving procedure.


Colon and Rectal Cancer

Colon cancer begins with a growth (a polyp) that is not yet cancer. Testing can help your doctor tell whether there is a problem, and some tests can find polyps before they become cancer. Most people who have polyps removed never get colon cancer. If colon cancer is found, you have a good chance of beating it with treatment if it is found early. Testing can find it early.


Diseases of the Colon and Rectum

Capitol Colorectal Surgery diagnoses and treats a variety of diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus. Hemorrhoids, pilonidal disease, diverticulitis, and others commonly require the expert opinion of a specialist in order to explore all potential options for treatment, including both non-surgical and surgical intervention.


Minimally Invasive / Robotic Surgery

Capitol Colorectal Surgery is the only specialty practice in mid-Michigan that regularly performs minimally invasive surgical procedures specific to the colon and rectum. Minimally invasive surgery refers to surgery thru smaller incisions which promotes faster recovery.
