Residents and Faculty

What our graduates say: “It’s well when the patient goes home and comes back to the office without issues. He was referred to me for an abdominoperineal resection (APR). Thanks to the training I received from Lehigh Valley Health Network, I was able to salvage his sphincters.” – Graduate of the Colon and Rectal Surgical Residency
