Colorectal Surgery

Improve your quality of life with surgery for problems related to your intestines. You can trust our expertise. Franklin Woods Community Hospital earned The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval® for minimally invasive colorectal surgery. Franklin Woods was the third hospital in the nation and the first in Tennessee to receive this honor.

Complete Care Centered on You

From the start of your care journey, you’ll team up with Ballad Health providers to plan for a successful surgery and recovery.

We’ll help you:

  • Understand what to expect long-term after treatment
  • Ease pain with as few medications as possible
  • Return to your home and daily activities sooner

Expect general surgeons to treat you using the latest and best tools and techniques available.

Conditions We Treat

Ask your doctor if surgery is your best treatment option for conditions such as:

  • Anal fistula
  • Anal fissure
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Colorectal polyps
  • Diverticulitis
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Rectal prolapse
  • Ulcerative colitis

Less-Invasive Colorectal Surgery

Whenever possible, your surgeon will use a minimally invasive approach that needs only tiny incisions (cuts in the skin). That means you’ll feel less pain after surgery, have smaller scars and recover faster.
