Colon Cancer Screenings
Approximately 135,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with colon cancer each year and people become more susceptible to this cancer as they age. Obesity, diabetes and family history can increase risk as well. Make sure you’re up-to-date with your colorectal cancer screenings and start thinking about your colon health!

minimally invasive surgery
Our surgeons are highly trained and experienced in minimally invasive robotic surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System. Robotic surgery is an enhanced version of traditional laparoscopy. Use of the robotic platform greatly increases surgical dexterity and its 3D HD stereoscopic vision is a significant improvement over traditional laparoscopic surgery. In terms of patient benefits, robotic surgery helps to minimize postoperative pain and decreases recovery time, both in the hospital and after discharge. Piedmont Hospital is the second largest robotic surgery center in the country and the surgeons of Piedmont Colorectal Associates account for nearly 75% of all robotic colorectal cases with over 1000 cases performed to date…
High Resolution Anoscopy (HRA)
High resolution anoscopy (HRA) is an in-office procedure that involves looking into the anal canal through a high resolution microscope and checking for pre-cancerous lesions and cells. To do this, our experienced colorectal providers use a high powered microscope that features several levels of magnification and illumination for optimal visibility. This state-of-the-art tool helps our providers diagnose and plan treatment with enhanced precision and confidence.
