Mr Darren Smith
Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon
MB ChB, MPhil, FRCS (Gen surg)
I was appointed to Wirral NHS Trust as a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon after completing a National Laparoscopic Fellowship. I have developed an extensive practise in laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease and provide laparoscopic support for my gynaecology colleagues in surgery for endometriosis. I have an interest in functional bowel disorders as well as diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy including colonoscopy and gastroscopy.
I undertake procedures for benign anorectal conditions including fissure, fistulas and pilonidal sinus disease. I am also trained and undertake modern haemorrhoidal surgery including THD. I perform hernia surgery both open and laparoscopic.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Darren Smith at Spire include:
I have worked at Arrowe Park since 2011, but my wife and I plus our 4 yr old son and pet dog have recently relocated to the Wirral and are enjoying family life. I have a keen interest in sport and in particular I am an avid supporter of Liverpool FC.
