Colorectal Cancer

Cancer of the colon or rectum, also called colorectal cancer, is the third most common cancer in the U.S. With screenings and early detection, however, the chances for recovery and survival are greater than ever before.

It’s now possible to remove polyps that were difficult — and sometimes impossible — to remove a few years ago, thanks to enhanced imaging technology our physicians use to view the colon, new treatment tools, and more effective medications.

When you come to Premier Health, our physicians, nurses, and navigators are committed to being with you through every phase of your journey.

Our cancer experts offer you advanced diagnosis and treatment.  Surgeons, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists work together to thoroughly understand your cancer and make a treatment plan to eliminate the cancer and help you thrive. Our entire colorectal cancer team is here to listen, answer your questions, and provide your care with great compassion and respect.

Throughout your cancer journey, we offer you education and support to help you and your loved ones cope with both the physical and emotional effects of cancer. We will be with you at every step.

Keeping You Safe During COVID-19

You will find new safety measures in place when you schedule appointments and come to our facilities — all with the goal of keeping you safe as we care for you.
