Colon and Rectal Cancer Team

COVID-19 update: We know that our patients and their families have questions related to care during this time. Please see COVID-19 Information and FAQs for Patients With Cancer for the latest updates.

One primary benefit of an academic medical center is the team approach to clinical care. Your care team at UC San Diego Health will include colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists who have specialized expertise and experience treating cancers of the colon, rectum, and anus. Their concentrated focus provides you with the latest and most comprehensive information and advances in the field.
