Dr Brendan Bebington


I am a specialist colorectal surgeon in independant private practice. Since 2010 I have been involved in the establishment of the WDGMC Colorectal Unit. Our aim as a private training unit, is to train the next generation of specialist colorectal surgeons. I oversee the training of at least 1 full time fellow, as well as a registrar from the Wits Department of Surgery. In addition to our regular patient consultation and surgical lists, we attend a weekly Oncology MDT meeting where we discuss indiviudal patients to reach a group consensus regarding the treatment best suited to their diagnosis. We host a monthly pelvic floor MDT meeting together with gynaecologists, urologists, radiologists, physiotherapists & psychologists to discuss patients who present with complex pelvic floor disorders, and decide upon the best treatment approach. I am an active member of the executive committee SACRS (South African Colorectal Society).
