Physicians | ASCRS


ASCRS has a wide variety of resources for physicans. Core Subjects are presentations from experts with evidence-based reviews on the current diagnosis, treatment and controversies of these diseases. Clinical Practice Guidelines are guidelines to assist physicians in caring for patients. Diseases of the Colon & Rectum (DC&R) is the official journal of ASCRS. It is dedicated to advancing the knowledge of intestinal disorders by providing a forum for communication amongst their members. 

Colon and rectal surgery is limited enough in scope to allow a surgeon to be a specialist and broad enough to keep one stimulated with its variety of procedures and patients. The specialty provides an opportunity for career flexibility due to a wide range of complexity of cases and procedures.

Despite decreasing reimbursement for many procedures, overhead continues to increase. We seem to pay more to get less and work harder to earn fewer dollars to pay for services and commodities. Furthermore, it often seems difficult to find an organization to adequately voice concerns and represent our needs. It is therefore crucial to avail ourselves of cost effective means of maximizing our return while minimizing the money expended to support our practices. The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons understands these issues and has incorporated them into its mission. Enjoy the benefits of membership along with the other 3,500 active members of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.
