Leading the Way in Colorectal Surgery
Our team offers nationally recognized care as one of the first programs in the country to be named a Center of Excellence by the National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer (NAPRC). Additionally, AdventHealth Orlando is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of America’s best hospitals for gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery, and our colon and rectal surgery program uses the most advanced diagnostic technology to treat a broad spectrum of colorectal diseases.
As leaders in surgical research, training and innovation, we treat more than 500 patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) each year as the primary referral center in Central Florida for patients with ulcerative colitis, and are advancing high-resolution anoscopy (HRA) care through the area’s first Anal Dysplasia Clinic. We pioneered transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) and robotic transanal surgery — techniques we teach leading surgeons and institutions worldwide.
Our team is here for you with the insight and experience to help you feel whole again.

Revolutionary Colorectal Surgery
When it comes to your care, we want you to have options. That’s why our surgeons, providers, researchers and all caregivers are continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, to offer you the best care for your whole-person health.
The colorectal surgery team is no different. Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) is a revolutionary procedure pioneered right here at AdventHealth. Designed to remove polyps and early cancers in the rectum, the procedure offers countless benefits, including faster recovery, less pain and fewer complications.
Previously, patients who needed cancerous growths or polyps removed may have needed their entire rectums removed through significant pelvic or abdominal surgery. Now, TAMIS, a procedure adopted around the world, is giving patients new hope.
Our team is also one of the few in Central Florida that performs transanal total mesorectal excision (taTME). This innovative approach allows your surgeon to remove lower rectal tumors with a smaller incision. And, the AdventHealth Digestive Health and Surgery Institute is honored to share our experience with other physicians as one of the few North American training centers for taTME.
