The Toronto Anorectal Program (TARP) is a collaborative benign anorectal surgery clinic that brings together the practice of four University of Toronto faculty colon and rectal surgeons. The Clinic operates as a centralized model, meaning that when a patient is referred to the clinic and appropriate for care, they will be seen for an initial consultation by the next available surgeon. 

Following the consult, patients who are suitable for surgery will be scheduled with the next available surgeon to complete the procedure. This means that a patient may have a different surgeon for their consult and subsequent surgery.

The centralized model helps low complexity patients experiencing some anorectal conditions receive surgical care as fast as possible.

The clinic provides care for various benign perianal diseases, including hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, anal fissures and anal polyps.
