Sphincter Saving Rectal Surgery in Manhattan
Colorectal Surgeons in New York
If you have been diagnosed with rectal cancer, you have likely been told
that surgery is the only or most effective form of treatment available
to you. However, the surgical treatment for rectal cancer is much more
sensitive than that of anal cancer - it requires extensive knowledge and
The reason this is so important is that tumors which develop in the rectum
are often very close to the sexual organs and the sphincter muscle and
must be removed with great caution. At Manhattan Surgical Associates,
we have been in practice for more than 50 years and have the required
training to complete sphincter preservation surgery.
A few of the possible techniques for sphincter preservation surgery include:
- Laparoscopic surgery
- Neoadjuvant therapy
- Coloanal J-Pouch
- Local excision
Creating an Effective Treatment Plan
By scheduling a consultation with a Manhattan colorectal surgeon from our
team, you will have an opportunity to discuss your condition and the surgical
options which are available to you.
Each surgical treatment is intended to fix a specific problem and it is
important that you have undergone a full examination and testing before
any decision is made. For example, if you have a very large or advanced
tumor, neoadjuvant therapy may be most appropriate for you to shrink the
tumor as much as possible before it is removed. If your tumor is not as
large, there are other less-invasive forms of treatment available to you.
