The Practice

Harris Colorectal is a specialist Colorectal Surgery practice located in Brisbane, led by Dr Craig Harris. We aim to provide high quality operative and non-operative management of all colorectal conditions, ranging from benign anorectal conditions such as haemorrhoids, to complex pelvic malignancies. Harris Colorectal utilises the offices of the Specialist Services Medical Group, allowing outpatient consultations at both Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital and St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital. These two hospitals provide the best colorectal surgery facilities and post operative care in Queensland. In the vast majority of cases, minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery are used.

Dr Harris can promptly see new and existing patients and arrange surgery or further investigations as required. Dr Harris has a particular interest in the management of patients with colon and rectal cancer. Dr Harris has advanced training in the surgical management of locally advanced and recurrent rectal cancer. He regularly performs pelvic exenteration surgery on patients from all over Queensland at the Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital, in collaboration with Dr David Taylor (Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at RBWH). At Harris Colorectal we have strong working relationships with many other specialties such as medical and radiation oncology, gastroenterology, gynaecology and pelvic floor physiotherapy. This allows prompt referral and multidisciplinary team management where appropriate.

For patients wishing to be treated publically, your GP, gastroenterologist or other specialist can make direct referrals to the public outpatient clinic at Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital.
