“All I do is colorectal surgery. Every day of my life, I go to be bed thinking about it. I wake up thinking about my patients and what they need for that day. And it doesn’t mean you have to have surgery, just because you come to me.”
Dr. McNeil is a colorectal surgeon. She specializes in all diseases and conditions of the colon, rectum and anus. It is an area of expertise that makes people who need her services a bit uncomfortable. But Dr. McNeil does her best to make you feel comfortable even when discussing uncomfortable subjects.
Board-certified in colorectal surgery, her specialties include treatment for:
- Colon and rectal cancer
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Pelvic floor issues such as fecal incontinence
Dr. McNeil uses the minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery technique whenever possible. If you have been diagnosed with rectal cancer, laparoscopic surgery can often help avoid the need for a permanent colostomy.
“I want people to know that they can come to me with any issue related to their colon or rectum that might require surgery. We have a very comfortable atmosphere here, and my team and I do our best to make you feel comfortable as soon as you walk through the door.”
What Dr. McNeil's Patients Are Saying
"I am literally just days out from my surgery and I am so compelled to just offer some words about Dr. McNeil. Dr. McNeil has a gift of being able to articulate a full situation and what to expect with her patients and family increased my confidence in her and my overall anxiety was decreased in the anticipation of the surgery. Dr. McNeil obviously loves what she does and takes her patients safety and quality of life very seriously. She came to see me every day after surgery while I was in the hospital including on her day off. Nurses and staff alike in the hospital also had nothing but the best and kindest words for her. I am still in the recovery phase but feeling thankful that Dr. McNeil was able to do such an outstanding job and get my body back in order."
