Benign or Noncancerous Conditions Treated

While treating cancer is a major focus for City of Hope’s Division of Colorectal Surgery, we are also dedicated to assisting people confronted with a range of benign conditions that are best addressed through surgery. We welcome patients facing any of the following disorders:
  • Inflammatory bowel disease, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease  
  • Acute and chronic diverticulitis
  • Pelvic organ and rectal prolapse
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Constipation
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Anal fissures
  • Anorectal abscesses
  • Colorectal, anorectal and rectovaginal fistulas 
For complex procedures, we work in close collaboration with other specialists. For instance, experts from our division tackle pelvic reconstructive surgery in teamwork with urologists and pelvic and sacral surgery alongside orthopedists and neurosurgeons. No matter what the challenge, our experts employ leading-edge approaches and develop treatment plans tailored to each patient.
