Aru is a Specialist Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgeon and the topics relate to Colorectal conditions in addition to some conditions he manages in General Surgery.DSC03073

The You tube video links show video clips of surgeries. We declare these videos are hosted on You tube and we are not involved in preparing these videos and are not aware of the identity of these patients. We acknowledge the video hosts for sharing their videos. We hope you will find it interesting and informative. However, we understand some aspects of the videos are only for professionals and one may find it difficult to comprehend medical terminology. This also applies to the power point presentation sections.

We feel this site will help Aru’s present, potential and past patients to understand what he can offer and will augment the flow of information and communication with him. You need a referral from your general practitioner to consult with Aru either through the private sector or the NHS. Aru practices at Duchy hospital in Truro  in addition to his NHS work at Royal Cornwall hospital.

This site will be updated and is still being developed and we are happy to receive feedback. In future we hope to provide a forum for his patients on the website.
