Dr. Andrew Shelton is the Chief of Colorectal Surgery at Stanford University, and leads a group of experienced board-certified colorectal surgeons (Drs. Gahagan, Gurland, Kin, Kirilcuk, Morris, and Shelton) who treat diagnoses including: colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular disease, polyposis syndromes, anorectal disorders, and pelvic floor dysfunction such as rectal prolapse and fecal incontinence.
The group has advanced surgical expertise in total mesorectal excision for rectal cancer; minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopy, robotic surgery, and transanal endoscopic microsurgery; ileal pouches for ulcerative colitis or familial adenomatous polyposis; care of the complex Crohn's patient, sphincter-preserving operations for low rectal cancers; and cutting edge approaches to rectal prolapse and fecal incontinence.
The colorectal surgeons collaborate clinically with gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgeons from other specialties to offer patients with complex colorectal problems an integrated treatment plan. Their academic collaborations with these same colleagues place them at the frontier of research in colorectal diseases.
