What Sets Us Apart
Physicians at NYU Langone’s Colon Cancer Screening and Prevention Program offer the most advanced screening techniques available to optimize the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer. This includes state-of-the-art technologies to enhance visualization during colonoscopy, same-day bowel preparation options, and other screening innovations.
For people who are diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer, our team of specialists at the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center collaborate to create a personalized treatment plan based on the location of the cancer, how advanced it is, and its molecular and genetic features.
Our medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, in collaboration with gastroenterologists and radiologists, provide comprehensive, coordinated treatment and care for people with even the most complex colorectal cancers. Our physicians are involved with clinical trials, which offer additional investigational treatment options.
Our team of genetic counselors, nutritionists, rehabilitation specialists, psychologists, social workers, and integrative medicine specialists can give you the support you need throughout diagnosis, treatment, and beyond.
