Colon & Rectal Surgery | Male

Biography

I am a Professor of Surgery at UTMB at Galveston and a past President of both the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery and the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgery. I earned my medical degree from Michigan State University (MSU), East Lansing, MI. and completed my residency in General Surgery at the Butterworth Hospital/MSU program in Grand Rapids, MI. I completed a research fellowship and colon and rectal surgery residency at Ferguson Hospital on the Grand Rapids and East Lansing campuses of MSU. I am board certified in general surgery and colon and rectal surgery. I am a fellow in the American College of Surgeons and the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. I was the inaugural Krause-Lieberman Chair in laparoscopic colorectal surgery at The Cleveland Clinic, where worked to develop one of the first high volume laparoscopic colorectal surgery programs in the US. I have also served Practicing Physicians Advisory Committee for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (chairing the committee for 2 years) where I advised CMS on physician payment policy. My surgical expertise involves laparoscopic bowel resection, surgical management of Crohns Disease and Ulcerative colitis, sphincter preserving surgery for rectal cancer, treatment of anal incontinence and constipation, and management of anorectal disorders. My research interests are: surgical innovations in laparoscopic bowel surgery; molecular and genetic changes in colorectal cancer; and new surgical treatments for incontinence and constipation. I have lectured nationally and internationally on various topics related to colon and rectal surgery, edited 5 textbooks in colon and rectal surgery, authored over 220 peer-reviewed publications and 25 textbook chapters.

    League City, TX |
    Was supposed to see a different provider that I was referred to by my oncologist and a friend saw Dr. Senagore instead. Dr. Senagore showed up late and then rushsed me through the appointment. He never made eye contact and appeared aggitated. He did an exam and did not tell me what to expect and was very rushed through both the consult and exam (which hurt). He did not appear to have any empathy for me and I could hear him raising his voice through the door
