UI Hospitals and Clinics

Colorectal Surgery

Our surgical team includes the only fellowship-trained colorectal surgeons in the region. In addition to skills in traditional surgery, they have extensive experience in minimally invasive approaches to complex disorders, including robotic colorectal surgery and single incision colectomies. These approaches can reduce the time you spend in the hospital and the risk of infection and hospital re-admission.

In some cases, innovative approaches can avoid the need for major surgical resection. Our colorectal surgeons work carefully with the gastroenterologists to offer you the least invasive procedures, including calling the surgeons in to a colonoscopy if needed so that if a problem is found it can be fixed during the screening procedure. These surgical specialists provide complete care of patients with colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and complex pelvic floor disorders.

Our surgery services include:

  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Ostomy consult service
  • Single incision colectomy
  • Robotic colorectal surgery

Our colorectal surgery services are also available for patients at Iowa River Landing. Located at the Coralville interchange on Interstate 80 (exit 242), UI Hospitals and Clinics - Iowa River Landing offers patients easy access, free parking, several amenities, and a state-of-the-art building for delivering outstanding patient care.
