About the Bryn Mawr Hospital Colorectal Cancer Program
The Bryn Mawr Hospital Colorectal Cancer Program offers advanced,
integrated care for patients with cancer of the colon. The program
comprises an interdisciplinary team of highly experienced physician
specialists, including colorectal and general surgeons, radiation
oncologists, medical oncologists and interventional radiologists.
Using the most advanced imaging technology, such as multi-slice CT and
PET/CT scans as well as endo-rectal ultrasound, our physicians can
precisely locate and accurately stage rectal cancers before any surgery
Our radiation oncologists use linear accelerators to target primary
tumors and metastatic disease without damaging healthy tissue. Whenever
possible, colorectal surgeons use minimally invasive techniques
(laparoscopic) to remove only diseased sections of the colon.
