A colorectal surgeon is a physician that specializes in the medical field of surgery involving the colon and rectum. A colorectal surgeon, also known as a proctologist, specializes in treating diseases and conditions of the lower part of the gastrointestinal tract. When a colorectal surgeon's level of care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts serious injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred. Unfortunately, even the best colorectal surgeons can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.

- Delay in Diagnosis or Diagnostic Errors;
- Failure to Diagnose;
- Failure to Document Carefully;
- Failure to Document Clinical Findings;
