A Colorectal Surgeon is a Board Certified doctor who treats and diagnoses conditions related to the small and large intestines as well as the anus and rectal region. These surgeons have expertise in not only general surgery but have also undergone advanced training in the medical and surgical management of diseases of the intestinal tract, colon, and rectum/anus, and perianal area. Surgeons within this specialty have training in open abdominal surgeries as well as in minimally invasive procedures such as endoscopy or laparoscopy.
Typically, your Primary Doctor or your Gastroenterologist will refer you to the Colorectal Surgeon for evaluation of a specific condition or treatment of a given diagnosis.

We just submitted our latest review on sacroiliac joint dysfunction to the Spine Deformity Journal.
The sacroiliac joint lies in the pelvis between the ilium and sacrum bones and can be a primary or secondary pain generator in a significant proportion of patients with low back pain. Non-operative management is the first line of treatment and when unsuccessful, surgical intervention through minimally invasive joint stabilization has shown very promising outcomes.
