Colorectal surgery and medicine

Colorectal and colonic diseases range in severity, from non-life threatening conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Crohn's disease through to colorectal cancer and bowel cancer.

The symptoms of colorectal diseases or illnesses can be similar. We focus on correctly diagnosing your condition and our caregivers are available to answer any questions you may have.

Robotic-assisted surgery

Our hospital is equipped with the latest robotic-assisted surgical equipment, the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, which surgeons can use when undertaking a range of procedures.

We offer you quick access to minimally invasive surgery, with the technology enabling your surgeon to plan your procedure and make precision incisions to reduce the impact on surrounding muscles and tissues.

This can mean you experience a fast recovery in hospital and at home, and you may experience less pain after surgery.

You can search for a specialist who works at our hospital and specialises in robotic surgery through our Find A Specialist search, or speak to your specialist about whether robotic-assisted surgery is available for your procedure.
