Specialized Treatment Plans
We provide diagnosis and treatment for colorectal cancer of all kinds and in all stages. Dr. Pappas will create a treatment plan focused on addressing your specific needs, and will use information gathered from a rectal exam, fecal occult blood test, and other tests to recommend surgery, chemotherapy, and other procedures.
The focus of colorectal cancer treatment is the removal of cancerous cells, which requires surgery on various parts of the colon, rectum, and anus. The surgery, in addition to screenings to ensure cancer is completely removed, may be all that is necessary to treat colorectal cancer in its early stages. Based on the results of the diagnosis, Dr. Pappas will determine whether additional procedures such as chemotherapy are necessary, and will make follow-up recommendations following your surgery.
