Colorectal conditions involve the last parts of the gastrointestinal system – the colon and the rectum. This commonly leads to disturbance in bowel habit, abdominal discomfort or pain, blood in the stool, and even weight loss. To investigate such problems, in addition to a consultation you may need to undergo one or more investigations including a colonoscopy, CT or MRI scan. Mr Chand is an accredited specialist in colorectal surgery and offers the latest treatments for a variety of conditions.
Robotic surgery has key advantages in some specific gastrointestinal (GI) conditions including faster recovery, fewer complications and more precise surgery. Mr Chand works within a global collaborative of robotic surgeons including Apollo Hospital, Chennai - one of the highest volumes centres globally, where he has completed an advanced pelvic surgery fellowship. He leads robotic training in GI surgery at University College London and is a key member of the newly formed Institute of Robotic Surgery at The London Clinic.
Endometriosis is a condition affecting up to 10% of women of reproductive age and in some cases can involve the lower bowel.

He is part of a nationally accredited BSGE unit and has a special interest in the laparoscopic treatment of this condition working with Mr Arvind Vashist and Mr Alfred Cutner.
