Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal Surgery at The County Hospital is provided by a multidisciplinary team of Surgeons, Gastroenterologists, Radiologists, Pathologists, Oncologists and Specialist Nurses.

Outpatient assessment, investigation, treatment and follow-up are provided for all colorectal surgical conditions, including colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel conditions (crohns disease and ulcerative colitis) and functional bowel disorders (constipation and incontinence).

Minimally invasive (laparoscopic) colorectal surgery is well developed, and enhanced recovery is provided by a dedicated team of doctors, physiotherapists, dieticians, specialist & ward nurses and other staff.

Colorectal surgical patients are admitted to Monnow (male) and Leadon (female) wards respectively.
