Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is a cancer that starts in the colon or rectum. It is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. If you are over the age of 45, or have a family history of colon cancer, you may need a colonoscopy. Depending on the stage of your cancer, you may also need a colon resection and/or a port placement for chemotherapy. Our team of surgeons at Phoenix Unified Surgeons specializes in these procedures and can provide you with the necessary care and treatment to help you through this difficult time. Come see us in the office or call us to have one of our surgeons see you in hospital. Drs Fox-McClary, Cammarata, & Brizendine are all experienced in these procedures and will discuss your options, recovery time, and care with you.
