Colon & rectal surgery
In the nearly two decades Stanley Fuller, MD, has been practicing medicine, he has seen a lot of cases. "I love the wide variety of patients I get to help, and the diseases I get to study," Dr. Fuller said. He says this variety is what keeps him so interested in the practice of colorectal medicine.
"I really enjoy the mixture of science and healing," he explained. "I'm fascinated that we can see most pathology before we get to the operating room. The patient benefits from this heightened understanding of a condition and treatment plan before any surgery takes place.”
Dr. Fuller enjoys helping patients with colon and rectal cancers, as well as anorectal diseases such as those causing anal fistulae or hemorrhoids. "I am very proud of the recent advances made in robotic and minimally invasive colorectal surgery," he said. "Our patients benefit from the shorter recovery times we can offer."
When Dr. Fuller is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Julie, and their three children. "Together, we love to travel and really enjoy water sports as well as team sports like soccer and lacrosse," he said.
