Prince Charles Hospital unit awarded special status.
It was given the ST-Specialist grade, which means it is recognised by the ACPGBI as a unit suitable for the training of coloproctology specialist registrars during the latter stages of their sub-specialist learning.
Professor P N Haray, a consultant colorectal surgeon at the unit and a leading specialist in laparoscopic bowel surgery, said: "The team is very proud of this accreditation - not only have we been accredited as a specialist coloproctology unit, but we have been successful in being granted the ST-Specialist level, which is the highest.
"This is gratifying recognition of all the hard work put in by various team members in providing training, which includes live operating master classes."
