Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Faecal incontinence and rectal prolapse remain common clinical conditions, where treatment and management remain a challenge for the patient and the clinician. The two conditions comprise an area where no two patients could be managed the same, each needing personalized tailored approach. Over the past decade there has been an influx of interest in managing patients with these very debilitating conditions, both in terms of surgical techniques, device, subspecialist training and multi-disciplinary approach. These coupled with reduction in stigma traditionally associated with the two conditions have encouraged patients to come forward and the health professional to develop a focused interest.
