The addition of an experienced practice specializing in colon and rectal surgery strengthens the ability of Greenville Health System (GHS) to treat a wide range of problems, from hemorrhoids to colorectal cancer.
In spring 2008, GHS was pleased to announce that Greenville Colon and Rectal Associates joined the Department of Surgery, now comprising the Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery. The colorectal surgery expertise of the division draws patients from Greenville, Asheville, Columbia, and areas throughout the region.
The practice started in the Upstate more than 20 years ago and has six colorectal surgeons: George Blestel, M.D.; Jay Crockett, M.D., FACS,; Patrick Culumovic, M.D., FACS; Cedrek McFadden, M.D., FACS; James Rex, M.D., FACS, FASCRS; and Yuliya Yurko, M.D. Each is fellowship trained in colon and rectal surgery.
Although surgery is their main focus, these physicians help patients with nonsurgical concerns as well. They perform screenings for colorectal cancer and specialize in treatment of all ano-rectal conditions, from perianal dermatologic problems to hemorrhoids and functional disorders. US News & World Report recently recognized Greenville Memorial Hospital Surgery as a High Performing in colon cancer surgery.
