Description

The Auckland Colorectal Centre is a group practice of colorectal (bowel) surgeons who specialise in the management of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. All have trained in general surgery then had further training in this speciality (link for more information).

The colon and the rectum are part of the digestive tract that processes the food we eat. Together they make up the large intestine or large bowel and are located in the abdomen between the small intestine and the anus. The colon is about 1.8m long and absorbs water and salt from food. The rectum is the last segment of the large intestine and is about 12 - 15cm long. This is where waste material is stored before it passes out of the body through the anus.

Referral Expectations

When you come to your appointment, your surgeon will ask questions about your illness and examine you to try to determine or confirm the diagnosis. This process may also require a number of tests (e.g. blood tests, x-rays, scans etc). Sometimes this can all be done during one visit, but for some conditions this will take several follow-up appointments. Occasionally some tests are arranged even before your appointment to try to speed up the process.
 
Once a diagnosis has been made, your surgeon will discuss treatment with you. In some instances this will mean surgery, while other cases can be managed with medication and advice. If surgery is advised, the steps involved in the surgical process and the likely outcome are usually discussed with you at this time.
