Get to know Colorectal Surgeon Dr. Alexander J. Crean, who serves patients in Jacksonville, Florida.

An exceptional colorectal surgeon, Dr. Crean is affiliated with HCA Florida Jacksonville Surgical Specialists in Jacksonville, Florida. He specializes in treating all stages of colon and rectal cancer through a minimally invasive surgical approach, including advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery. Through a collaborative effort with local gastroenterologists and oncologists, he focuses on providing the most efficient and effective care for colon and rectal cancer. 

Furthermore, he enjoys treating benign colon and rectal disease, providing a wide range of office based treatments for hemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal fistulas, and anorectal pain or bleeding. His primary focus in treating benign colorectal disease is improving the overall quality of life of his patients.

Finally, Dr. Crean is highly interested in the surgical management of inflammatory bowel disease. He strives to provide appropriate surgical care for patients diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, including collaborative medical management with gastroenterology as well as complex or re-operative surgery for patients suffering from chronic inflammatory bowel disease.

A native of Augusta, Georgia, Dr. Crean completed his undergraduate studies at Duke University and returned home for his medical education at the Medical College of Georgia. He then went on to complete his 5-year residency in general surgery at the Drexel University/Hahnemann University Hospital, and pursued an additional year of fellowship training specializing in colorectal surgery at Stony Brook University Hospital.

Distinguished as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), the doctor attained board certification in colorectal surgery and general surgery through the American Board of Surgery (ABS) and the American Board of Colorectal Surgery (ABCRS). The ABS and ABCRS are independent, non-profit organizations founded for the purpose of certifying surgeons who have met a defined standard of education, training, and knowledge.

Colorectal surgery is a field in medicine dealing with disorders of the rectum, anus, and colon. The field is also known as proctology, but this term is now used infrequently within medicine and is most often employed to identify practices relating to the anus and rectum in particular. A colorectal surgeon is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of anorectal and colorectal conditions (conditions of the colon, rectum, and anus).
