Dr. Bradley G. Bute, current President of the New York Society of Colon and Rectal Surgery, has been practicing colorectal surgery for over 25 years. Dr. Bute received his undergraduate degree in Biology, graduating magna cum laude from Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC in 1978. His doctoral degree in medicine was obtained from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in 1982. He completed his General Surgery residency in 1988 at Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia. Studying under the President of the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery as well as other international specialists, Dr. Bute's comprehensive subspecialty training in Colon and Rectal Surgery was completed at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas in 1990.
From 1990-1995, Dr. Bute taught general surgery at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center in Denver, Colorado. He served with distinction in Saudi Arabia and Iraq during the Persian Gulf War. In 1995, he honorably separated from the U.S. Army as a Lieutenant Colonel and as the senior colorectal surgeon in the United States Army.
In 1995, Dr. Bute was asked by the former President of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, Dr. Labow, to join a colorectal surgery practice in Great Neck, New York. In March 2000, Dr. Bute opened his own solo private practice Advanced Colon and Rectal Surgery, LLC. He provides general colorectal screening and treatment with special expertise in colonoscopy, anal and rectal disorders, including problems with incontinence. He is the first colorectal surgeon with IMP.
He performs both laparoscopic and traditional surgery for colon and rectal cancer, diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease. Fissures, fistulas, abscesses and hemorrhoids are routinely treated often without surgery.
Dr. Bute maintains board expertise in both General Surgery and Colon Rectal Surgery. He has served as treasurer, vice president, and now president of the New York Society of Colon Rectal Surgeons. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Hofstra- North Shore LIJ School of Medicine and mentors young and upcoming medical students.
Dr. Bute was born in Chicago in 1955 but spent most of his childhood in St. Louis including taking summer classes at the St. Louis Zoo with Marlin Perkins. He married his college sweetheart in 1978, and is proud of his three daughters and new granddaughter. Once you have visited Dr. Bute's office, you will know his passions: St. Louis Cardinals, hot sauces, and golf - although he only claims to be an expert at the first two.
