Hope that is helpful. I've gone Mayo Clinic and also to MD Anderson trying to get on a trial, but so far have recieved all my treatments at the local cancer center in North Dakota.

Some go to a major cancer center for second opinions but go to their local hospital for oncology care.

And know that their colorectal group is one of the best in the world.  That said, Roswell Park has a superb reputation also.  My surgeon, Philip Paty, is known for trying to minimize the damage from rectal surgeries, to preserve function if at all possible.  Mine is appendix cancer, and I believe that if I'd had any other surgeon, I would have ended with a colostomy, as he resected my colon in 3 places, and re-attached everything perfectly, so I function fully normally.

I won't pretend to know anything about Roswell, in fact I've never heard of it, but I absolutely love MSK in NYC.  I'm stage IV colon cancer, 13 months post liver resection, and 6 months post chemo - feeling great and my scans in July were clean.
