A colorectal surgeon is a surgeon who specialises in the management of disorders of the small bowel, colon, rectum and anus. This includes both benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) problems such as:
• Colorectal cancer and polyps
• Inflammatory bowel disease including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
• Diverticular disease of the colon
• Anorectal conditions including haemorrhoids, fissures, abscesses and fistulas
• Pelvic floor disorders including bowel prolapse
• Functional bowel problems such as constipation and incontinence
In particular colorectal surgeons have been specifically trained in the diagnosis and treatment of rectal cancer. Rectal cancer treatment requires special investigations prior to surgery and specialised skills to remove the rectum. Colorectal surgeons have additional experience in this type of surgery.
Colorectal surgeons who are members of the CSSANZ have undertaken further specialist training in colorectal surgery to become experts in their field. This usually consists of a minimum of two years of additional training in accredited clinical positions as well as performing research into aspects of colorectal surgery. –
