Education and Experience

Daniel Geisler, MD, FACS, FASCRS

Fellowship-trained colorectal surgeon.

Daniel Geisler, MD, FACS, FASCRS, is an internationally recognized colon and rectal surgeon. Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Geisler pioneered single-port colorectal surgery and is one of just a few surgeons in the country doing this procedure - currently the least invasive way to perform colorectal surgery - allowing patients a quick recovery and decreasing many of the complications associated with more invasive conventional surgery. Dr. Geisler has utilized single-port surgery in both the pediatric and adult patient population and currently offers a minimally invasive approach to over 90 percent of his patients.

In 2009, while at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Geisler performed the world’s first SILS total proctocolectomy and ileoanal pouch procedure, where he was able to remove the entire colon and rectum with the creation of an ileoanal pouch through the same incision that was also used to create a temporary defunctioning ileostomy, hence leaving the patient without any visible incision after the procedure. He also performs sphincter preservation surgery for low and unfavorable cancers of the rectum.
