Colon & Rectal Cancer Surgery

For early-stage colon and rectal (colorectal) cancer, your doctors at OU Health's nationally recognized Stephenson Cancer Center may recommend surgery as the most successful treatment option.

Individualized Colorectal Cancer Treatment

At Stephenson Cancer Center, Oklahoma’s only NCI-Designated Cancer Center, you’ll work with highly trained and experienced colon and rectal surgical oncologists to develop a personalized treatment plan to address your particular situation.

Colon & Rectal Cancer Surgery

Through an extensive evaluation process, you and your OU Health team may choose from a variety of standard surgical techniques for your specific circumstances or determine if you’re a good candidate for minimally invasive or robotic-assisted surgery. These procedures require only a few small incisions, which reduces scarring and the risk of infection while speeding recovery time. No matter which procedure fits your needs, you can rely on receiving top-quality cancer surgery care at Stephenson Cancer Center.

Follow-Up Treatment Options

Once colorectal cancer surgery removes the tumor, your Stephenson Center team may recommend follow-up treatment options such as chemotherapy / infusion or radiation therapy to eliminate any lingering cancer cells.
