Living with cancer

Why you need a second opinion for colorectal cancer

If you’ve been diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer, your doctor likely says you need surgery. While surgery is a primary treatment, the type of surgery, who performs it and how, whether you should have other treatments before the operating room, and access to the very latest options are critically important — with lifelong impact.

Why it matters

Cancer is our only focus

Roswell Park provides care for the whole person. While our surgical, medical and radiation oncologists treat the disease, our patients can also rely on a team of psychologists, social workers, dietitians and other professionals, who work together to provide a full spectrum of integrated care — all under one roof.

We know every patient is unique. That’s why we deliver the highest-quality care, with a treatment plan tailored specifically for you.
