Colorectal & Intestinal Disorders
The colon is a six-foot segment of the large intestine that moves waste from the small intestine to the rectum. Disorders of the colon and intestines are quite common and include colitis and chronic ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, colon and rectal polyps and colon cancer.
The Gastroenterology and Hepatology Department at Virginia Mason is an international center for treating patients with colon and intestinal disorders, offering standard therapies as well as newer treatments available only within clinical trials. Patients also benefit from DDI quality measures to monitor and manage their care, often over decades.
