Mr Mark Chapman
Consultant Colorectal Surgeon
MA (Hon) Cantab, MS Lond, FRCS Eng, EBSQ coloproctology
I was appointed as Consultant Colorectal to Good Hope Hospital in 1998 and have been consulting at Spire Little Aston Hospital since then. Currently, I am Lead Cancer Clinician for Heart of England Foundation Trust incorporating Good Hope Hospital. I am also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Birmingham University.
I trained at Cambridge University and the Royal London Hospital, and before being appointed to Good Hope, was lecturer in surgery at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham. I was appointed a Hunterian Professor by the Royal College of Surgeons in 1998 for his research into colonic flora and inflammatory bowel disease. In 2000 I passed the European sub-specialty exam in coloprotology (EBSQ).
My interest and expertise lies in diagnosing and treating diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. I have developed a sub-interest in sacral nerve stimulation and other treatments for faecal incontinence. I have published extensively in the field of colorectal disease.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Mark Chapman at Spire include:
Consultant Colorectal Surgeon, Good Hope Hospital, University Hospital Birmingham NHS Trust
Honorary Senior Lecturer, Birmingham University
I am married with three, almost grown up children, one of whom is studying medicine. Outside medicine, my interests include music, biographies and wine. I'm enjoy cycling and running to help relax. I also take part in the fellowship of Aldridge Parish Church and Lichfield Cathedral.
