The department of colorectal surgery specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal and anal pathology including bowel cancer (colorectal cancer), diverticular disease and inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease).
We treat a variety of other conditions such as anal fissure, anal fistulae, haemorrhoids (piles), anal skin tags, fibroepithelial polyps, warts, pruritis ani (anal itching), pilonidal sinus and pelvic floor disorders including rectal prolapse. Our aim is to treat patients with skill, confidentiality and understanding. Many patients can be diagnosed and treated within the outpatient clinic but others will require further investigations and we have access to a full range of specialist investigations and treatments for colorectal disease.
