Colorectal surgery involves any condition associated with the gastrointestinal tract, in particular, 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. Conditions which are specific to the anus and rectum may result in itchiness, discharge or infection from the back passage.
