DR. SASSE NAMED A FELLOW OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF COLON AND RECTAL SURGEONS
After a year’s long process, I was very gratified to receive the designation as a Fellow of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. The society has quite rigorous criteria and requires extensive training including fellowship residency training beyond general surgery training plus a passage of a series of board exams and an application process including review of colon and rectal surgical cases.
It is an honor to become a fellow in the society that sets such high standards for colon and rectal surgery. My areas of expertise are particularly focused of laparoscopic and minimally invasive intestinal abdominal surgical procedures. I was fortunate to receive extensive training in minimally invasive surgery for intestinal disorders and colorectal disease as well as other gastrointestinal and abdominal disorders. And in the years since that training have been fortunate to be in a position to further refine the techniques for successful outcomes with less invasive surgical intervention.
Minimally invasive intestinal and colorectal procedures allow for people to return to work sooner and recover more quickly after surgical intervention. I perform a high number of laparoscopic and minimally invasive intestinal surgical procedures for many abdominal and colorectal disorders including colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and a host of other abdominal conditions including gallbladder disease and hiatal hernias as well as, of course, bariatric surgery.
So my thanks to the society for designating me a fellow and I look forward to participation in the society in the future.
