Safer surgeries and faster recoveries

Screenings save lives. Are you up-to-date?

If detected early, colon and related cancers are treatable and beatable. Every adult should get screened regularly. Ask your primary care physician about when you should get screened and the range of screening options available.

Comprehensive care you can trust

Peconic Bay Medical Center’s colorectal surgery program provides expert surgical care, including robotic-assisted and other minimally invasive techniques, as well as colonoscopies to both detect and treat conditions affecting the colon and rectum, intestinal tract, pelvic floor, anal canal and perianal area.
