Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - (Clinical Series Track)

Philip L. Rosen, MD, FACS, joins the University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson Department of Surgery as a clinical assistant professor of colon and rectal surgery in the Division of Surgical Oncology.

Dr. Rosen has advanced training in minimally invasive colon and rectal surgery including robotic and laparoscopic surgery as well as screening colonoscopies and office-based procedures.

He received his Medical Degree from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. He completed his training in general surgery at SUNY Downstate/Kings County Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, and completed his colon and rectal surgery fellowship with a focus on robotic and minimally invasive surgery at the Colon & Rectal Clinic of Orlando.

Dr. Rosen is dual board certified in both general surgery and colorectal surgery. His research interests include minimally invasive surgery and cancer outcomes.

“I believe in treating colon, rectal and anal issues nonoperatively whenever possible," he said. "But when surgery is required, I use the latest technology and minimally invasive techniques including robotic and laparoscopic surgery to maximize safety, minimize scarring, and return patients to their healthy lives as quickly as possible."

Outside of medicine and surgery, Dr. Rosen enjoys tennis, cooking, and exploring Arizona with family and friends.
