1714Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery
Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery
Laparoscopic ("key-hole") colorectal procedures are minimally invasive, and have the proven benefits of less pain, faster return to normal eating and drinking, faster return of bowel function and a shorter hospital stay.
1723Rectal Prolapse Surgery
Rectal Prolapse Surgery
Rectal prolapse is a protrusion of the bowel into the anal canal, or external. Procedures can be performed abdominally, where the approach is through the abdominal cavity, or perineal, that is through the rectum.
1719Robotic Colorectal Surgery
Robotic Colorectal Surgery
Robotic surgery has been implemented in colorectal interventions in Australia in recent years. With highly sophisticated technology and 3D vision the precision is superior to other modalities.
1725Transanal Endoscopic Microscopic Surgery
Transanal Endoscopic Microscopic Surgery
Transanal endoscopic microscopic surgery (TEMS or TEO). This minimally invasive technique allows removal of rectal adenomas and early cancers without a major colorectal resection.
1727Anal Incontinence Treatment
Anal Incontinence Treatment
Anal or faecal incontinence can be a very debilitating disease.
Colonoscopy involves visualising the colon with a long camera. The lining of the bowel wall can be assessed for growths such as polyps or cancer, and inflammatory conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns disease, or  other forms of colits.
1742Surgery For Endometriosis
Surgery For Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a complex disease that causes problems with pain and infertility. When the bowel (colon and rectum) is involved a combined approach between expert gynaecologist and specialist colorectal surgeon is important. 
1746Manometry & Ultrasound
Manometry & Ultrasound
Your doctor may have requested anal Manometry and Ultrasound to further investigate problems of incontinence, defecation,  fissures, or cancer.
