staff and physicians at the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute's Colorectal
Program coordinate all of the services related to the diagnosis, treatment and
monitoring of colorectal cancer.
A number of physicians from within
different specialties on the Abbott Northwestern Hospital campus are actively
involved in the Colorectal Program.
They participate in monthly
treatment planning conferences to review recent cases. This helps improve the
consistency and quality of care.
