What is gastroenterology?

Our Gastroenterology team deals with disorders of the digestive system, which is an important component for the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer. We offer innovative, minimally invasive procedures to treat colorectal tumors, and relieve the troubling symptoms that often accompany the disease.

As part of the nutrition and metabolic support group, our gastroenterologists work closely with your oncologists, dietitians, naturopathic clinicians and the other members of your colorectal cancer team.
