Colon cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States and the third most common cancer in both men and women, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention.

On Tuesday, Turlock’s Emanuel Specialty Care announced the arrival of General Surgeon Dr. Zhong Wang, who specializes in colorectal surgery.

Dr. Wang has completed a fellowship in colorectal surgery at the Southern Illinois School of Medicine. Prior to that he completed his surgical residency at Brooklyn Hospital Center in New York from 2006 to 2012.

“I chose to specialize in surgery because as a surgeon you can make an immediate impact,” Dr. Wang said. “Surgeons solve problems quickly and for patients our work has an immediate effect and reward when you treat an injury, remove a cancer or remove the source of an infection.”

Dr. Wang received his advanced training in colorectal surgery under the guidance of eight surgeons and he will perform minimally invasive surgery such as laparoscopic colon resection and robotic colorectal surgery. He will also hold screenings, surveillance and therapeutic colonoscopy.

“The diseases of colon, rectum and anus are very common,” he said. “They range from minor conditions such as hemorrhoids, constipation, rectal bleeding and fissures, to major diseases such as colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease.”

Originally from Sichuan, China, Dr. Wang received his Bachelor of Medicine in 1994 from West China University and his Doctor of Medicine in 2000. From 2000 to 2006, he was a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Pittsburgh. And after Pennsylvania and Illinois, he’s looking forward to settling down in California.

“Turlock is a nice town to raise my family, and I like the weather,” he said. “Since there is no colorectal fellowship-trained surgeon in this area, I’m looking forward to bringing my skills to serve the people here.”

Dr. Wang is married and enjoys tennis.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
