Mr Guy F Nash MD MBBS FRCS (Eng)
Consultant Surgeon, Assoc. Professor (St Georges, Gren) Visiting Fellow (Bournemouth University) and Lead Surgeon at Poole Hospital
Welcome to my website which aims to inform patients and colleagues about Surgery. I came to the Poole and Bournemouth area from St. Mark’s Hospital in London and as a Consultant Surgeon have published and presented results from my clinical work, some of these are included within this website. Feel free to use the Search box at the top right for the condition of your interest, especially those in bold text below.
I offer a wide range of General Surgical services for patients presenting with both elective and emergency problems. This includes Laparoscopic abdominal operations, gall bladder operations, hernia surgery of all types, excision of skin lesions, vasectomies, scrotal and groin lumps in addition to the Colorectal (gut) operations below.
My Colorectal practice includes patients with minor colorectal problems like itching, incontinence, haemorrhoids (piles), fistulas and fissures. Rectal bleeding affects up to 20% of the adult population per year and reassuringly it is usually due to a simple cause, but it is important to rule out other causes. I have a special interest in Anal Cancer and AIN which may precede it.
I manage patients requiring surgery for inflammatory bowel disease and those requiring major operations for bowel cancer. When clinically appropriate I offer laparoscopic (key hole) colorectal surgery. I have helped develop SILS (single incision laparoscopic surgery) which I offer for suitable cases. For early rectal cancer and polyps I also offer Transanal Endoscopic Microscopic Surgery (TEMS) using highly specialized equipment that is available in Poole.
Away from Surgery I am married with four lovely children, play golf (handicap 9), support West Ham; contributing to Bobby Moore’s biography and I collect the graphic works of Salvador Dali.
