Both Dr. Joel Porter and Dr. Frederick Slezak attended medical school at The Ohio State University and met during their General Surgery Residency at Akron City Hospital. In 1987 they formed Akron Colon and Rectal Surgeons, the first active Colon and Rectal Surgery group in Summit County. The company was renamed Associated Surgical Specialists LTD in 1997.
Their practice, located in the Center of Excellence at Summa, offers evaluation and treatment of colorectal diseases and conditions ranging from colon and rectal cancer to the aggravating symptoms of hemorrhoids and fissures. Their staff is particularly sensitive to the often personal nature of colorectal complaints and will make a visit comfortable and personal from start to finish.
