The Colorectal Surgery department has received a significant focus since the opening of Jordan Hospital for its importance in the community and improving our patients’ health. It is the specialty dedicated to diseases of the colon and rectum and their management medically and surgically.
Many diseases affect the colon, rectum, and anus: from benign to malignant pathologies. The department offers state-of-the-art treatments, including Laser interventions for anal fistulas and hemorrhoids, laparoscopic resection of the intestines, and minimally invasive procedures for these organs.
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers; early dedication and appropriate management are crucial in curing it. A multidisciplinary team manages these conditions to facilitate the treatment plan according to the international guidelines and keep up-to-date with the fast developments in the world of medicine to ensure our patients receive the best treatment.
Our expert consultants work closely with consultants from the Gastroenterology, Medical Oncology, Radiology, and Urology departments. Prompt and accurate diagnosis and treatment are facilitated by housing all these specialties in the Jordan Hospital.
Benign conditions as hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, anal fissures are treated with either open traditional surgical procedures or more advanced technologies such as laser-based treatments. The appropriate treatment method is tailored to each patient.
Our consultants are also experts in managing Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease. These conditions are treated medically or surgically depending on the presenting symptoms, progression, age of the patient, and previous procedures.
