A colorectal surgeon has a particular interest in diseases of the colon and rectum. To become proficient in the treatment and management of these digestive conditions, a colorectal surgeon must undergo training in both general surgeries as well as advanced training in the problems of the lower digestive tract. A colorectal surgeon might also sometimes be called a proctologist. In addition, a colorectal surgeon may also perform regular screening exams, such as sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy, for colorectal cancer and other digestive disorders. Some colorectal surgeons will have specialized knowledge of patients with IBD and have more experience with common IBD surgeries such as resections, ostomies, j-pouches, and strictureplasty.
