Mrs Christine Craig
Consultant Colorectal Surgeon
MBChB, FRCS(Ed), PG Cert
I'm a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at Spire Manchester Hospital.
After my medical degree in Leeds, I completed my training in the Manchester region.
I became a Consultant in 2010 and worked at Trafford General Hospital, which later merged with Manchester Royal Infirmary.
I still provide an outreach service of endoscopy and outpatients at Trafford and Altrincham hospitals to serve the local population but the majority of my time is spent at MRI.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Christine Craig at Spire include:
Open hernia repairs only, ilonidal sinus, OGD, rectal prolapse surgery, rectocele surgery lumps on body and limbs, lumps on body and limbs, surgery for inflammatory bowel disease.
Spire Manchester Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
