Our surgeons consult on a wide range of benign and malignant conditions of the bowel including bowel cancer and polyps, diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal bleeding, incontinence and haemorrhoids. We offer screening and investigations for patients with positive results from the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program, Bowel Screen and patients with family history of Colorectal disease.
Our colorectal surgeons provide gastroscopy and colonoscopy to investigate and treat conditions of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. These services are provided as day case procedures at hospitals in the Wollongong and Shellharbour areas.
