Patient Reviews
Aug 11, 2022
22 years ago, around this time, Dr. Cirocco did an emergency surgery to remove a failing J Pouch that was the result of a total colectomy nearly 30 years ago. This was at Lee's Summit, Missouri. I have had good results with the ostomy that he created from the J Pouch, oh, I had Ulcerative Colitis beginning in 1976 when I was 4 years old. He saved my life, quite literally.

About Me

Care Philosophy
  • Dr. Cirocco provides cutting edge treatment with a special emphasis on advanced surgical techniques to allow patients to avoid a permanent colostomy including coloanal anastomotic techniques for very distal rectal cancer or restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for either Chronic Ulcerative Colitis or Familial Adenomatous Polyposis. He has published his in-depth outcomes for colorectal operations including rectal resection following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for rectal cancer (American Journal of Surgery 2019; 217: 435-6) and the Altemeier procedure for rectal prolapse (Diseases of the Colon & Rectum 2010; 53: 1618-23).
