Cleveland Clinic
Department of Colorectal Surgery

Our colorectal surgeons perform more than 5,000 surgical procedures annually, including an average of 500 laparoscopic intestinal resections, 260 operations to treat Crohn’s disease, and 170 ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) surgeries.

DDI colorectal surgeons performed the world’s first total proctocolectomy and ileoanal pouch procedure with a single-incision.

The Digestive Disease Institute performs the world's highest volume of J-pouch procedures and is the nation's largest referral center for repairing pelvic pouches.

Our surgeons use the latest in diagnostic and treatment options, including transanal endoscopic microsurgery and intraoperative radiotherapy.

DDI colorectal surgeons utilize various surgical methods to avoid a permanent colostomy in the treatment of rectal cancer. These options include:

• Transanal excision
• Radical excision of the rectum with anastomosis of the colon to the anus
• Colonic J pouch
• Coloplasty

DDI houses the largest institutional registries for inherited colon cancer-- David G. Jagelman Inherited Colorectal Cancer Registries- in the United States and the second largest in the world.

Cleveland Clinic was the birthplace of Enterostomal Therapy/Wound Ostomy, Continence Nursing nearly 50 years ago. DDI's Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing School was the first of its kind in the world.
