Professional profile

Mike Scott is a Consultant Colorectal, Laparoscopic Colorectal and General Surgeon in Gloucester. He has a busy NHS practice in the Colorectal Unit at Gloucester Hospital, part of Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust where he is Lead Clinician for Colorectal Surgery. He consults with patients privately at the Winfield Hospital, Gloucester and Spire Clinic, Cheltenham. He is the lead for the Colorectal Cancer MDT in Gloucester and is a nominated surgeon for the management of patients requiring surgery for anal cancer.

Mr Scott treats patients with all colorectal conditions. He has a particular interest in the modern treatment of haemorrhoids. This includes minimally invasive doppler guided haemorrhoidal artery ligation (HALO), also known as transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialisation (THD). This technique is associated with minimal discomfort afterwards and a fast return to normal activities. He also has an interest in diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy as well as Endoscopy training. He is the Endoscopy training lead in Gloucester, is a regular faculty member on training courses at the Gloucester Endoscopy Training Centre and is a national assessor for the Joint Advisory Group for Endoscopy.

Mr Scott is a fully trained surgeon specialising in the use of laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis) and diverticular disease. This approach has the advantages of smaller scars, less pain, a quicker recovery with less time in hospital and a faster return to normal activities/work. It is likely to result in fewer adhesions (scar tissue) inside the abdomen as well as fewer wound complications (infection, hernias).

Following medical training at the University of Nottingham, Mr Scott undertook his surgical training on the Cambridge and West Midlands rotations and spent two years of research in London investigating the impact and efficacy of surveillance following Colorectal Cancer Surgery. This culminated in the award of several prestigious prizes (Norman Tanner Prize, John of Arderne Medal, Royal Society of Medicine Overseas Travelling fellowship) and a number of publications.

He was awarded a fellowship in Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery by the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland and trained with Mr Mark Coleman (National Clinical Lead of LAPCO, the national training programme in laparoscopic colorectal surgery).
