Surgical Options

Temple’s experienced gastrointestinal surgical team provides surgical treatments for diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, gall bladder, pancreas and liver.

The Temple surgeons and gastroenterologists work closely, often meeting with patients as a team to review conditions or upcoming surgery.

Our gastrointestinal surgical team specializes in using minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques whenever possible. This offers patients a quicker recovery time, shorter hospital stays, and a reduced risk of complications.

Colorectal surgery

Temple’s colorectal surgeons offer the full spectrum of medical and surgical treatments for colorectal and small intestinal disorders including rectal prolapse, fecal incontinence and anal, perianal and colorectal cancers. Colorectal surgery at Temple is routinely performed laparoscopically, through small incisions.

Bariatric surgery

The Temple Bariatric Program offers weight loss surgery for obesity. We provide open and laparoscopic gastric bypass, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and duodenal switch surgeries.
