Mount Carmel treats patients for colon and rectal cancers, inflammatory bowel disease, colon polyps, and other disorders like Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Diverticulitis. Many of these surgeries are performed with minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic techniques, including:


A colectomy is the removal of a diseased colon or harmful growths in the colon. The minimally invasive approach uses several half-inch-long incisions in the abdomen.

This minimally invasive procedure is available on the da Vinci Robotic Surgery System.

Transanal Endoscopic Surgery

Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) is a technique for removing rectal tumors through the anal opening rather than through more complicated abdominal surgery. Mount Carmel is one of only a few centers in the United States to offer this very specialized minimally invasive surgery.
