About the Centre for Colorectal Disease

The Centre for Colorectal Disease was established at St Vincent’s University Hospital in 1993 with the aim of delivering quality care to all patients with colorectal disorders (notably colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and pelvic floor disorders) while at the same time developing high quality research, teaching and education.  At the core of the Centre is the collaboration between a multidisciplinary clinical team (consisting of colorectal surgeons, medical gastroenterologists, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and specialist nurses) with our dedicated team of scientific staff.
