Faecal incontinence

Faecal incontinence, or the involuntary passage of stool, is a very embarrassing condition for patients. In some cases it can turn them into ‘prisoners in their own home’ because they are scared to leave the house for fear of not getting to the toilet in time. Mr Smith treats faecal incontinence on a regular basis and completely understands the embarrassment that many patients have about discussing it’s symptoms and how reluctant they may be to seek help.

Mr Smith has developed pelvic floor services within the NHS using the training he obtained in the Cleveland Clinic, USA which is an international centre of excellence for pelvic floor disorders and he now works as part of a multi-disciplinary team in Liverpool. While surgery can sometimes be appropriate in the treatment of faecal incontinence, Mr Smith has observed that a large proportion of his patients have had their symptoms reduced to a tolerable level, or in some cases disappear altogether, using non-surgical means which he has recommended.

Mr Smith is happy to discuss your individual problem and the full range of management options at either Spire Liverpool Hospital or at The Royal Liverpool Hospital, UK.
