The colon is a complex organ which can be affected by many different conditions. To get help for colon-related issues, visit Colon and Rectal Surgery of Manhattan. Here, our doctors can provide diagnosis and treatment for all New York City, NY patients.
The colon also called the large intestine, removes water, salt, and surplus nutrients from the body in the form of stool. The colon's walls are lined with specific muscles which squeeze the contents along and out of the body. Billions of bacteria spread over the interior surface of the colon and its contents, creating a healthy balance within the body. The colon plays a very important role in digestion and at Colon and Rectal Surgery, the doctors are trained to address any issues which could develop.
