Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery concerns surgery to the anus, colon, rectum and small bowel for the treatment of acute conditions such as bowel perforation or ischaemic bowel or long-term chronic conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

We have a wealth of experience dealing with claims surrounding colorectal surgery, including:

  • Anastomotic leak
  • Delayed diagnosis of bowel perforation or ischaemic bowel
  • Bowel perforation due to surgical error
  • Delayed diagnosis of appendicitis
