Colorectal Surgery

The research in colorectal surgery focuses mainly on colorectal cancer, functional disorders, proctology, diverticulosis and peritoneal carcinomatosis.

The main fields of research:

  • Colorectal Cancer
    • We have been involved in and organized multi-institutional trials in adjuvant treatment in colorectal cancer. 
  • Functional Disorders
    • We have a long tradition in research in both incontinence and constipation. We have specialist nurses performing rectal sensibility and biofeedaback treatment.
  • Proctologi
    • Our main interest has been the treatment of patients with fistulas but also patients with haemorrhoids.
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    • Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease
  • Diverticulosis
    • We have had a long interest in the treatment on diverticulosis and diverticulitis.
  • Peritoneal Carcinomatosis (PC)
    • Uppsala University Hospital was the first institution in the Nordic countries to offer treatment with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC).
