We collaborate with oncologists specializing in colorectal cancer at Columbia University Medical Center's Herbert Irving Cancer Center and with gastroenterologists with a wide range of sub-interests practicing at all of Columbia University Medical Center's practice locations. The division employs cutting-edge techniques, including minimally invasive surgical techniques (like laparoscopy) when appropriate.
