Alabama Colon & Rectal Institute (ACRI) is a free standing, private practice in downtown Birmingham, Alabama with four board-certified Colon and Rectal Surgeons. Our practice is limited to diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. We perform surgery at multiple sites including five local hospitals and outpatient operations at our AAAASF nationally accredited office-based surgical facility. ACRI provides quality colon and rectal surgical care, colonoscopy and transrectal ultrasound services in an efficient and cost conscious manner. Our major goals are to provide these services in an environment which will assure our patients’ privacy, confidentiality, and above all, their satisfaction and safety.
We have been national preceptors for Ethicon on two leading edge anorectal procedures and currently perform the innovative sacral nerve stimulation implantation for refractory bowel incontinence. We are actively involved in teaching. Our surgeons are voluntary teaching staff for a local general residency program and our anesthesia department teach CRNA students from Samford University. We do most of our inpatient abdominal surgery laparoscopically or robotically with fast track recovery and excellent cosmetic results.
