Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery at Scott & White has been in the forefront of minimally invasive surgical techniques. In our practice, we've actually incorporated robotic surgery, as well as single incision laparoscopic surgery, and straight laparoscopic surgical techniques for the care of the cancer patient, as well as other patients. These patients tend to have better outcomes in terms of decreased hospital stay and a shorter recovery period.
