Sandra Beck attended medical school at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, and completed a general surgery residency at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. She then completed training in colon and rectal surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.
Beck's clinical interests include the surgical treatment of Colon and Rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis) and complex anal-rectal disorders. She specializes in minimally invasive approaches to colorectal disorders including laparoscopy, robotic surgery and transanal endoscopic microsurgery.
My patients and I are equal members of the surgical team. As their physician, it is important to me that my patients understand their disease, the rationale and details of their surgical procedure, and the critical role they play in achieving the best possible outcome.
The patient, my staff, and I are a team. We communicate and collaborate with each other throughout the entire operative process. Afterward, we coordinate follow-up visits and, if necessary, delve into post-surgical recovery and support services. When all that planning and work comes together and results in an improved quality of life for patients and their families, that is when I experience the most satisfaction as a physician.
The majority of surgical procedures performed at UK are minimally invasive which involve small incisions. This results in less scar tissue, and lower risks of infections and complications. It is a privilege to work at UK, where we stand at the forefront of new advances in medicine and surgery for the benefit of our patients and the education of our residents.

I Email Sandra's Nurse ( no phone email ) This Dr. Save my life! I've had 2 Dr. About my belly for the last 3 years .They would not help me! I've suffer so bad unable to work, and have walk through he!! Because a Dr would not help me or even try to make me feel better. You think a Dr has to take care for you and do their Job but they don't . They don't have to care .I've lived through it....I only went to see her 2 times and she was willing to. Help me.She was not even going to cut on my Colon that day .She was just going to look at it. She ended up taking 8 inches out and couldn't believe how swollen it was. I was Lucky it didn't bust and Kill me. I thank God for her ever day She was my Angel that me and my family has been praying for .. and she blessed me with a new belly.Thank God for Sandra Beck needs a raise in pay!
