We offer state of the art keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery for colorectal cancer and also transanal endoscopic microsurgery for early rectal cancer. All patients are discussed in a colorectal multidisciplinary meeting and patients are fully informed and are central to decision making regarding their treatment.
Gastric, duodenal and colorectal polyps
Polyps are growths on the lining of your bowel or stomach. Although some polyps have a genetic cause (they run in families), most are sporadic (appearing with age, time or wear-and-tear). The majority of these can be removed during the endoscopy procedure.
Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis)
Common symptoms include abdominal pains, diarrhoea, rectal bleeding and bloating.
Rectal bleeding and anal pain
Bleeding from the back passage can be caused by a number of conditions. Whilst most cases are self-limiting and usually due to less serious conditions such as haemorrhoids or an anal fissure, it can represent something more serious. It is commonly investigated using a telescopic camera into the bowel called a colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy.
Perianal / pilonidal abscesses and fistula in ano
Anal fistula can develop after having an abscess in the bottom. It can lead to annoying and persistent discharge as a communication is established between the skin near the anus and the rectum. Often these can be treated with a simple operation but in some cases a series of procedures are needed.
Haemorroids, also known as piles, occur when the lining of the anal canal becomes engorged with blood. This is commonly associated with straining on the toilet and constipation however they can occur spontaneously. They can cause bleeding most frequently but also other symptoms such as discomfort, itchiness and lumps in the bottom. Amyn Haji offers all the latest treatments and focuses on providing minimally invasive daycase procedures such as banding, RAFAELO procedure and haemorrhoidal artery ligation (HALO).
Indigestion / Difficulty swallowing
You will need an endoscopy to investigate these symptoms and it is important to see medical advice for this. In many cases, indigestion can be treated easily with dietary advice and weight loss/exercise. Difficulty swallowing and food getting stuck always needs urgent endoscopy investigation.
