Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yeo "My goal, as a colon and rectal surgeon and as a surgical oncologist is to help my patients make informed decisions in their care and understand their disease process and treatment options, both surgical and non-surgical.  I hope to help my patients find a better quality of life and to help them through their surgical experience (when necessary).  I am lucky to work with a world renowned group of multidisciplinary specialists to help promote a multifaceted treatment plan for my patients, including radiation oncologists, medical oncologists,  radiologists,  pathologists, gastroenterologists, pelvic floor specialists, urologists, and interventional radiologists."
