Research is necessary to find ways of treating patients that work and other ways to improve your health. Sometimes the research only involves answering questions about certain things, and sometimes it involves taking a new treatment.  Research offers many possible benefits to patients - it may allow access to new procedures and treatments, and it allows patients to contribute to research that will benefit others.

We are a research centre.   You may be asked to participate in a research study during your care with us.   While we would appreciate your participation in our ongoing efforts to improve the treatment of patients with cancer, colitis and other colorectal diseases, you are under no obligation to join our research endeavours.   If you do not participate, you will still receive the best possible care while treated by our general surgery team.
