We provide specialist / regional services in pelvic floor disease, treating faecal incontinence, constipation and prolapse.

There is also an advanced anorectal physiology laboratory assessing roughly 200 patients per year.

'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough - could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
