About San Diego Colon and Rectal Surgeons

About Us

Located in La Jolla, California, San Diego Colon and Rectal Surgeons is a practice composed of two experienced, fellowship-trained, and board-certified surgeons who are dedicated to the practice of high-quality, state-of-the-art colon and rectal surgery.

The team, led by M. Jonathan Worsey, MD, and Keith A. Beiermeister, MD, is committed to providing compassionate, individualized care to their patients utilizing the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic techniques available.

The practice specializes in all aspects of colon and rectal surgery but has particular expertise and experience in minimally invasive colon and rectal surgery, colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel surgery, and complex re-operative surgery.

The vast majority of major operations are performed with both surgeons present to ensure an efficient, safe, and successful procedure; this is quite unusual in most surgical practices today. They do not employ allied health providers, and direct and specialized care is given by the surgeons at all times. The team prides itself on excellent surgical outcomes and the provision of the best possible care and attention.
