Message From the Colon and Rectal Surgery Program Director

Zachary H. Torgersen, MD., FACS

Thank you for your interest in our program! We are proud of our long history of training colon and rectal surgeons.

Our practice has been in place for over 100 years. We continue to enjoy training future colon and rectal surgeons. Our program highlights are listed in the section “About the Program” and Program Curriculum”! We have five faculty who have trained at four different programs. We offer exposure to the full gamut of colon and rectal surgery and strive to make our fellow’s education maximally efficient. Our program prides itself on exceeding case requirement minimums for more than a decade.

Omaha is an easy city in which to live and spend your fellowship year. Traffic is light and travel time is minimal. There are plenty of activities throughout the city during all four seasons (which you will get to experience).

We hope you will consider applying to our program. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
