Colon & Rectal Surgery Research

Our team at NYU Langone’s Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery conducts research to develop innovative surgical techniques and devices to enhance treatment for colon and rectal cancer and functional bowel disorders. Our goal is to improve survival, quality of life, and clinical outcomes for our patients.

Our research helps people preserve ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (J-pouch) function and avoid permanent ileostomy for conditions such ulcerative colitis. We conduct clinical trials of advanced treatment options such as new medications to maintain remission in people who have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Our current clinical trials include the following:

Our clinicians and scientists conduct clinical trials and research studies to investigate new treatments for people who have colorectal conditions. Browse all current clinical trials at NYU Langone and search trials by condition or investigator.
