Colorectal surgery provides diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal diseases. We provide multidisciplinary care of a inflammatory bowel disease and gastrointestinal cancers.
About Stoma Care
The stoma care department plays a vital role in supporting individuals who undergo stoma formation surgery (part of the healthy colon is brought to the surface of the abdomen to form an opening) or who have fistula. This involves providing support and information before and after surgery.
