Oxford Colorectal Surgery

The Oxford Colorectal Surgery department has an international reputation and is leading the way in the management of colorectal diseases. There are six consultant surgeons with a team of over 30 surgeons in training and specialist nurses. It is one of the national centres for Lapco – training surgeons in laparoscopic or keyhole surgery. Donations from OCCTOPUS have provided state of the art operating theatres for this minimally invasive surgery. Developments have included node mapping, Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TEM), pouches for IBD and laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy for pelvic floor disorders.

There are close collaborations with colleagues in oncology, gastroenterology, imaging and pathology.

Clinical Research fellows work with top scientists in the University of Oxford.
