The surgical work at St. Mark's Hospital specialises in advanced techniques for the treatment of both common and unusual problems of the small and large bowel and of the anus.
Experienced surgical teams are supported by experts in allied disciplines. There is a strong commitment to the craft of surgery, the analysis of results and identification and development of new surgical strategies.
The clinical interests of the Department of Surgery include all aspects of colo-proctology. In addition to this broad generality much of the work is generated by tertiary referrals within special areas of interests including:
Malignant and pre-malignant disease of the large bowel
Other perianal conditions
Familial Adenomatous Polyposis
Other polyposis syndromes
Short bowel syndrome
