Dr. Brewer also initiated, within Colorectal Surgery Associates, Central Georgia’s first and only onsite surgical anorectal physiology laboratory that allows him to use the latest advanced technology to evaluate and treat rectal cancer and use surgical and non-surgical approaches to bowel incontinence, constipation, and pelvic pain syndromes. From an academic point of view, Dr. Brewer currently is Chief of the Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery and Clinical Professor of Surgery with the Mercer University School of Medicine Department of Surgery.
