Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Favuzza "I have the ability to help people with problems that involve the colon and rectum, such as colon and rectal cancer, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease - like ulcerative colitis and Crohn's - and many anal rectal problems. I also have the opportunity to help people with debilitating and embarrassing disorders like fecal leakage or fecal incontinence. A new procedure for patients who fail medical therapy for fecal incontinence is sacral neuromodulation. It's a minimally invasive procedure which involves the insertion of a very thin wire in the upper buttock. This wire communicates with the pelvic floor, anal sphincter and bowel to help stimulate and control fecal incontinence. It's always nice to hear about the things that they're doing that they weren't able to before implantation of this device. Most patients have seen an incredible, dramatic improvement in their quality of life, as well as decrease in their fecal incontinence symptoms."

Attempted to make a appointment with this office twice both times the doctors either rescheduled or wasn't available for the appointment time. I even arrived to find out my appointment had been canceled wasn't even notified!
