Pelvic Floor Repair Surgery

Ensuring the welfare and safety of our patients is our main priority.

We are investigating concerns that have been raised regarding certain pelvic floor repair procedures which are performed to treat rectal prolapse. We can confirm that the surgeon under review is not currently providing any procedures at our hospital.

We would like to reassure those affected by this that we are doing what’s best for patients and we are doing all we can to fully investigate the issues that have been raised. If you have concerns about pelvic floor repair surgery for rectal prolapse performed at Southmead Hospital we would encourage you to contact our helpline on 0117 4140844.

We have reviewed the waiting lists for these procedures at North Bristol NHS Trust and have been liaising with patients to ensure that a clear and agreed plan for their care is established. We will continue to update patients as more information is available.
