Gosford Private Hospital has been recognised by the Cancer Institute NSW and Canrefer as a Specialist Centre for the treatment of Rectal Cancer.
The management of rectal cancer can be complex, especially for people who require surgery.
A person with a suspected rectal cancer should be referred to a specialist who is a member of a relevant multidisciplinary team and practices at a specialist centre.
The management of rectal cancer requires a team of health care professionals with experience in rectal cancer (including surgery) and the availability of adequate supportive care following surgery.
Even if surgery does not seem likely at the time of referral, early involvement of a multidisciplinary team is recommended to ensure optimal assessment, care, and outcomes.
