It may also involve surgery to the pelvic floor to repair hernias. Colorectal surgery is performed to repair damage to the colon, rectum, and anus, caused by diseases of the lower digestive tract, such as cancer, diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
