Jeffrey Ferris, MD, chief of Colon and Rectal Surgery, in his office at MedStar Franklin Square
Our colorectal physicians are specially trained in the latest techniques, including robotic surgery, for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the colon and rectum. We offer symptomatic relief and treatment for hemorrhoids, fissures, diverticular disease, and polyps, among other conditions.
Colorectal surgeons typically treat the following areas of the gastrointestinal tract:
- Small intestine
- Large intestine or colon
- Rectum—the end of the large intestine
- Anus—the end of the intestinal tract where the sphincter muscle opens and closes the rectum to outside of the body
Our technology, as well as our approach to treatment, is tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. We offer a high level of comfort and utilize the latest minimally invasive techniques for colon and rectal surgery, which reduce recovery time, minimize hospital stay, and facilitate return to normal daily activity.
