Diagnostic and Operative Procedures

Bowel Surgery

There are lots of types of bowel surgery. Your bowel (intestine) is made up of your large and small bowels.  You might need to have surgery if your bowel has been affected by a condition, such as bowel cancer or diverticular disease, or you have inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

Problems with the anal canal, such as haemorrhoids, fissure (a tear) or fistula also can require formal surgery. Quite often haemorrhoids can be treated just in the clinic by rubber band placement.
