Sphincter Preservation Surgery

Sphincter Saving Rectal Surgery in Manhattan

Colorectal Surgeons in New York

If you have been diagnosed with rectal cancer, you have likely been told that surgery is the only or most effective form of treatment available to you. However, the surgical treatment for rectal cancer is much more sensitive than that of anal cancer - it requires extensive knowledge and technical skills.

The reason this is so important is that tumors which develop in the rectum are often very close to the sexual organs and the sphincter muscle and must be removed with great caution. At Manhattan Surgical Associates, we have been in practice for more than 50 years and have the required training to complete sphincter preservation surgery.

A few of the possible techniques for sphincter preservation surgery include:

  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Neoadjuvant therapy
  • Coloanal J-Pouch
  • Local excision

Creating an Effective Treatment Plan

By scheduling a consultation with a Manhattan colorectal surgeon from our team, you will have an opportunity to discuss your condition and the surgical options which are available to you.

Each surgical treatment is intended to fix a specific problem and it is important that you have undergone a full examination and testing before any decision is made. For example, if you have a very large or advanced tumor, neoadjuvant therapy may be most appropriate for you to shrink the tumor as much as possible before it is removed. If your tumor is not as large, there are other less-invasive forms of treatment available to you.

Experienced & Knowledgeable Surgeons

Our goal is to offer you the treatment option which is as minimally invasive and effective as possible. We know that you may have a variety of questions and concerns, all of which we can address in your initial consultation.
