Diseases and conditions affecting the colon, rectum and anus can be difficult topics to discuss, but online resources can help answer patient and family member questions. To help empower patients and loved ones with knowledge, the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) has built a video library addressing common colorectal topics and conditions. All videos feature a physician or surgeon who explains the cause, symptoms and some possible treatment options for a variety of colorectal conditions.
Diseases are not the only topics covered, videos also cover the importance of colon screenings, including retorts to popular excuses, plus each video contains a brief review of the qualifications of colon and rectal surgeons, all in clear and easy to understand language.
Please understand that these resources are no substitute for a doctor’s advice about your specific condition, and our team would always be happy to assist you with any concerns you may have. Also, this video database is not maintained by our practice and may change at any time. If you have questions about any thing in the videos, or your condition, please contact us at 407.303.2615, or fill out our online contact form.
