Applications are invited for a Consultant General Surgeon with an interest in Colorectal Surgery based in Raigmore from February 2019.

The General Surgical Service is supported by new and excellent ITU/HDU facilities; a radiology department, endoscopy unit and theatres with full range of laparoscopic equipment. Raigmore Hospital is one of the five cancer centres in Scotland. Chemotherapy, radiotherapy and neo-adjuvant chemoradiation are administered on site. The colorectal MDT sees >200 new cancer diagnoses a year. We have separate pelvic floor and inflammatory bowel disease MDTs. Complex surgery including ileoanal pouch formation for inflammatory bowel disease and exenterative surgery for recurrent rectal cancer is done locally here at Raigmore. Laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy and sacral nerve stimulation are available locally for patients with pelvic floor disorders.

The Department has consultant general surgeons with interests in colorectal, endocrine, upper GI/HPB, vascular and paediatric surgery. There are three oncoplastic breast consultants providing the breast reconstruction service, and five consultant urologists.
