Hello from JA

I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine and I can help you with this and any follow up questions. I cover a lot of ground and might give you an answer or ask for information, but use reply to communicate with me for questions or added details.


Problems of the colon would be addressed by a gastroenterologist.

Colon surgery by a colorectal surgeon.

An endocrinologist would rarely be involved in these situations. Perhaps if there were endocrine tumors, but then as a consultant, not as a surgeon.

Any doctor that is qualified can be in the OR assisting, but would not be in charge of an operation.
