Why choose Mayo Clinic

The prospect of major surgery is scary. At Mayo Clinic, every possible step is taken to ensure that the surgical care is delivered by highly qualified surgeons in an environment that supports quality care and patient safety.

The first step in this process is to match patients to the right surgeon. All Mayo Clinic colorectal surgeons are certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery. Decision-making about treatment is always made by a team of physicians including other surgical specialties, or together with oncologists and radiation oncologists.

The next step is to provide surgery in an environment focused on patient safety and quality care. Real quality of care arises from a system, and at Mayo Clinic we provide that system of care. Across the board, in all medical and surgical specialties, we have experienced leaders who can expertly manage your care. Taken together, these services can make a difference.

Surgical care does not end with surgery. Mayo surgeons and clinicians will coordinate all aspects of your recovery and return to health. Our team has access to the best network of auxiliary health resources in the region, including rehabilitation, oncology, nutrition and nursing services.
