“Preventing & Treating Colorectal Cancer” Physician Talk, Free Screening on March 30

Colorectal cancer is 90 percent curable when detected early. So, during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in March, UH Digestive Health Institute and UH Seidman Cancer Center encourages everyone over the age of 50 to be screened.

Learn the screening guidelines and latest diagnostic information from colorectal surgeon Anthony Senagore, MD, in “Preventing and Treating Colorectal Cancer: What You Really Should Know,” a free physician talk on Monday, March 30 from 7-8 p.m. at the UH Parma Health Education Center, 7300 State Road. All attendees will receive a free kit for the fecal immunochemical test, which can detect hidden blood in the stool that may be a sign of precancerous polyps or colon cancer.

Dr. Senagore, MD, MBA, MS, FACS, FASCRS, specializes in colon and rectal surgery at University Hospitals Parma Medical Center. He trained at Michigan State University, where he completed his residency in general surgery at Butterworth Hospital and his fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at Ferguson Hospital.

He has special interests in laparoscopic bowel resections, surgical management of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, sphincter-preserving surgery for rectal cancer, treatment of anal incontinence and constipation, and management of anorectal disorders.
