      I came to Dr. Haas in the summer of 2015 with severe complications from Ulcerative Colitis. Today, I can proudly say that I am back to myself after 6 years of this dealing with this disease. I have 2 small scars, after 3 surgeries, over 10 months. I now have no colon, but truly feel like a normal human being again. The entire staff was very professional and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Dr. Haas and the entire staff to anyone dealing with Ulcerative Colitis.

      Dr. Haas did an excellent job on my surgery and I received wonderful care from him and his staff. I have had no problems since my surgery.

      it was very good and relaxed since the day after surgery , I took my pain medication, followed his post surgery instructions, and went to the shopping center to walk around. I never though this procedure would be so painless. I am very happy after a month with the results , and thanks Dr Haas for the great job you did . My advise to everybody is to make up your mind and get it done since nowadays with the new techniques, the recovery process is not as painful as people think it is . Thank you

      I was excited to have Dr. Haas as my care provider for several colorectal health issues, especially when, during my first day of treatment, he reassured me that I was in good hands. This turned out to be all talk. Dr. Haas demonstrated a terrible bedside manner and would often leave the room while I was speaking to him, he ignored an obvious anal fissure that was nearly disabling, and prioritized giving multiple bandings to relieve minor hemmorhoids for profit over my own health.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Haas' Care Philosophy

      Dr. Eric M. Haas is recognized as an expert in the specialty of minimally invasive laparoscopic colon and rectal surgery. He has performed over 1,000 cases, making him one of the highest volume surgeons in the world. Dr. Haas is actively involved in the promotion of modern and innovative techniques to enhance patient safety and recovery through research and clinical trials. He serves as a preceptor to train and educate surgeons, fellows and residents to help them gain competency with these techniques and skills. During minimally invasive surgery, a high magnification camera and specialized surgical instruments allow the surgery to be completed through small incisions. All the major maneuvers previously done through open surgery with a large scar across the belly are performed through tiny dime-sized incisions. Surgical trauma is greatly reduced and the scar is minimized with this advanced technique, so patients have significantly less pain and a quicker return to normal activity.
