Why choose Henry Ford for colorectal cancer treatment?

People throughout Michigan and the Midwest turn to us for colorectal cancer treatment because we offer:

  • Colon and rectal tumor boards: Dedicated colon and rectal tumor boards meet weekly to discuss each patient’s case. You receive coordinated input from colorectal surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists and other colorectal specialists.
  • Sphincter-sparing colorectal surgery: We offer advanced sphincter-sparing procedures that preserve bowel function after colon and rectal surgery. Our expertise with this technique means most people won’t need a permanent colostomy after treatment.
  • Care for metastatic colorectal cancer: Colorectal cancer that has spread to other areas of the body requires specialized care. We offer combination colorectal, lung and liver surgeries, as well as the newest drugs (immunotherapies and targeted therapies) for late-stage colon and rectal disease. These treatments can help many people with advanced cancer live longer.
  • Personalized approach: Our colorectal cancer specialists design treatments around you — the specific type of cancer you have, as well as your needs, overall health, age and lifestyle. If we suspect colorectal cancer runs in your family, our Cancer Genetics Program can provide genetic testing and counseling.
  • Clinical trials: We actively participate in colorectal cancer clinical trials. These studies give you access to tests and therapies not yet widely available, such as new drug combinations for late-stage colon cancer. We’re also working to make sure minorities have improved access to and representation in colorectal cancer clinical trials. We believe everyone deserves the best chance for a successful outcome.
  • Accredited program: Henry Ford Hospital has earned a three-year accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer (NAPRC), which was developed through a collaboration between the OSTRiCh (Optimizing the Surgical Treatment of Rectal Cancer) consortium and the Commission on Cancer, a quality program of the American College of Surgeons.
