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 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.
I have developed an extensive practice 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.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Darren Smith at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Murrayfield Hospital Wirral.
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.
