Colon resection & cancer removal.

Colorectal Cancer - Fremont, CA

Of all the disorders affecting the gastrointestinal system, colorectal cancer is one of the most serious. Although one of the most curable cancers if diagnosed early, it is also one of the most common cancers in the United States. Colorectal cancer is now the third-most common cancer found in men and women in this country.

The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 107,000 new cases of colon cancer and 42,000 new cases of rectal cancer this year in the United States. Combined, they will cause over 55,000 deaths. However, early detection and treatment of colorectal cancer improves overall cure rate significantly.

If it turns out that your patient has a colorectal condition requiring surgery, including colorectal cancer, they’re in excellent hands with board-certified surgical specialists Ramesh C. Karipineni, MD, and Kranthi K. Achanta, MD. Both are highly trained surgeons who offer patients advanced surgical treatment for many benign and malignant diseases of the colon, rectum and digestive tract, including:

  • Colon cancer
  • Diverticulitis
  • Rectal cancer
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Anal fissures & fistulae

When appropriate, we can perform colon resection and cancer removal surgeries with a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique for less postoperative pain, shorter recovery times and much less scarring.

The caring & commitment your patients deserve.

Each surgical case is considered carefully, with special attention and time paid to the patient’s individual needs and goals. For your convenience, we have our own onsite, fully accredited surgery center and your patients will be treated only by board-certified, experienced, skilled general surgeons with excellent bedside manners.
