Colorectal Cancer Program

North York General Hospital's Colorectal Cancer Program offers patients easy and timely access to quality care.

Who do we serve?

Patients who have biopsy-proven, primary colon or rectal cancer.

North York General's Colorectal Cancer Program cares for patients along their entire journey; from diagnosis to quality care to surgical treatment to chemotherapy through to survivorship or palliative care.

  • We are one of the very few hospitals in Canada to review every single colorectal cancer case by a multidisciplinary tumour board.
  • We are leaders in transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS)
  • We are recognized by Cancer Care Ontario Access for having the lowest cancer surgery wait times in Ontario, three years in a row
  • We are actively participating in clinical trials and research.

The program offers the best wait times, the most surgical oncologists, Canada's only Survivorship Program, expertise in minimally invasive surgery, regular communication every step of the way and one-step referral services.

Additionally, symptomatic patients can access expedited colonoscopies, receive support from a dedicated patient navigator and customized information kits and online resources.
