"Colon Surgery"

About: St Mark's Hospital (Harrow)

I recently spent some time in St Marks as an in patient when I underwent surgery on my colon. The care and attention I received was excellent, Due to the time spent in the skilled hand of my surgeon and his team, I am recovering well and everything is returning to normal. Before my diagnosis, although I knew of St Marks, I was not aware that it is one of, if not the, leading hospital in the world for the diagnosis and treatment of bowel and intestinal disease. How fortunate am I to have this wonderful institution only 10 mins drive from my home! Finally I would like to express my sincere thanks to the medical, nursing and auxilliary staff on Frederick Salmon ward, who cared for me during my stay.
