About Us

Dr. Walter Longo
At Yale Colon & Rectal Surgery, we provide personalized, compassionate care for patients with a wide variety of gastrointestinal, abdominal, and colorectal conditions and diseases. We understand that the thought of surgery can seem frightening, which is why we take the time to answer all your questions in detail. Our goal is to provide the most effective treatment with the least scarring and postoperative discomfort and the shortest recovery time. 

Our multidisciplinary team includes some of the most experienced surgeons in the world, as well as a dedicated team of skilled specialists who collaborate with leading gastroenterologists, endoscopists, radiologists, nutritionists, psychologists, and cancer experts at the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven and throughout the northeast and the entire U.S. This team approach allows us to offer the most advanced treatment and the most comprehensive care in the region. 

We offer the highest standard of screening, diagnostic techniques, and traditional and minimally invasive surgical and medical treatment and management for even the most complex benign and malignant gastrointestinal diseases. Our surgeons have extensive experience in performing surgical revisions for conditions that require repeat surgery and for the correction of previous surgeries.
