Conditions

An overview of the conditions that are treated at One Health.

Sportsmans Groin

Sportsman's groin is a widely used term for painful conditions affecting the groin region in athletes. The pain is usually chronic and affects the lower abdomen, groin or upper medial thigh.

Gallstones

Gallstones are small, pebble-like substances that develop in the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped sac located below your liver in the right upper abdomen.

Diverticular Disease

Diverticula can occur throughout the colon but are most common near the end of the left colon called the sigmoid colon. The condition of having these diverticula in the colon is called diverticulosis.

Haemorrhoids

The term haemorrhoids refers to a condition in which the veins around the anus or lower rectum are swollen and inflamed. Haemorrhoids are either inside the anus—internal—or under the skin around the anus—external.

Fistula

An anal fistula is a connection (opening) between the skin around the anus and the rectum.

Hernias

A hernia is when an internal part of the body, such as an organ, pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease consists of the major conditions of Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis. There are some people with colonic inflammation which is difficult to fit to a particular pattern, and we call this indeterminate colitis.

Pilonidal Sinus

Pilonidal means a 'nest of hairs'A sinus tract is a small abnormal channel (a narrow tunnel) in the body. A sinus tract typically goes between a focus of infection in deeper tissues to the skin surface. This means that the tract may discharge pus from time to time on to the skin.

Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is a cancer of the colon or rectum. It is sometimes called bowel cancer or cancer of the large intestine. It is one of the most common cancers in the UK.

Treatments

Gastroscopy

A gastroscopy is a test where the endoscopist looks into the upper part of your gut (the upper gastrointestinal tract).

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

This is a test to look at the left side of the large bowel or colon. It is done by a colonoscopy specialist.

Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy is a test where the endoscopist looks into your colon.

Hernia Repair (Laparoscopic and Open)

Traditional methods of hernia repair involve pulling together the muscle and tissue. This creates tension, causing pain and a longer recovery period. Modern repairs use a synthetic mesh to "patch" the hernia in a tension free manner.
